Unruly passenger on Delta Air Lines hijacked flight identified as flight attendant on leave – –


Delta Air Lines on Saturday identified an unruly passenger on a Friday night flight from Los Angeles to Atlanta as a flight attendant on leave.

A cell phone video shows passengers above the person and reveals a voice over the aircraft’s public address system: “The captain is speaking. We would like all the strong men in the front of the plane to deal with a problem passenger. “

The flight was diverted to Oklahoma City and the FBI took the person into custody based on unknown allegations. The passenger’s name was not disclosed.

FBI spokeswoman Megan Lauro only said the FBI is investigating the incident.

According to Delta, the person had at least attempted to access the aircraft’s public address system before being confronted with passengers.

“Thank you to the crew and passengers of Delta Flight 1730 (LAX to ATL) who helped restrain an unruly passenger as the flight was diverted to Oklahoma City (OKC),” Delta said in a statement. “The plane landed without incident and the passenger was evacuated by the police. We apologize to our customers for the delay and any additional inconvenience this caused. “

The airline said the flight continued to Atlanta after the passenger was removed from the flight.
