The flight landed safely at 11:35 HST, American Airlines said in a statement.
Passengers and crew then subdued the man, took him to the back of the plane and duct-taped him to a seat. Neither he nor the suspect were identified. "You're not gonna open that cockpit door", Deeds told ABC7 News. But according to Hawaii News Now, the man is a 25-year-old Turkey national.
The man did not fight with the other passengers and left a black laptop he had been clutching to his chest on the drink cart, she said.

U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly was briefed on the disturbance, according to a statement from the department. "She was tasked with keeping him out of there, and she did a great job", Lee Lorenzen told the news outlet. He was arrested for allegedly trespassing, given a court date and released from custody. "Local law enforcement responded once the civilian airliner was on the ground", Benham said.
She said the crew requested law enforcement meet the plane upon landing because of a "passenger disturbance". He was restrained in his seat with duct tape for the rest of the flight.
