This unusual situation occurred during a two-hour flight from Dallas, Texas to Charlotte, North Carolina. An hour after take-off, a row arose over the American Airlines plane.
At first, the hosts did not want to say anything to the confused travelers. In the end, the whole confusion turned out to be due to a passenger who attacked the crew and tried to open the machine door during the flight – the New York Post reported. The woman was screaming, “I have to get off this plane.”
The aggressive rider was overcome. It was tied with duct tape. The restricted woman was registered by another passenger on the same flight. The recording shows that the assailant is still aroused.
According to the American media, the woman had mental problems, and during the flight she had a nervous breakdown and began to behave aggressively.
American Airlines confirmed the incident. “The passenger tried to open the front door and attacked and bit the stewardess. For the safety of the crew and passengers, the woman was handcuffed,” the carrier’s spokesman said in a statement.
“We salute our crew for their quick reaction and ensuring safety on board,” he added.
After landing at Charlotte Airport, security and medical personnel were waiting for the woman. The passenger was taken to a local hospital. By the time the investigation was completed, American Airlines had put him on the banned people list.
