Passengers settling into a six-hour flight to Honolulu noticed an oddly behaving man before the plane took off from Los Angeles.
Hawaiian Air National Guard F-22 jets were scrambled to escort American Airlines Flight 31 after a man reported to be Turkish tried to break through the cockpit door of a commercial plane flying from Los Angeles to Honolulu.
A passenger aboard the flight posted an Instagram video that showed someone being escorted down the plane's aisle in handcuffs, being directed by a person wearing an Federal Bureau of Investigation windbreaker, along with other people wearing sidearms, the Honolulu Advertiser reported.
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.
The man was aboard American Airlines Flight 31. "We were greeted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation".
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.
There are no other reports of disruptions, but the department said it is monitoring all flights on Friday out of caution.
A law enforcement official says a man who caused a disturbance on a flight between Los Angeles and Honolulu attempted to access the cockpit of the plane.
Los Angeles airport police spokesman Rob Pedregon said Uskanil was a ticketed American Airlines passenger with a boarding pass who had cleared security screening but claimed that he lost his way because he was tipsy from drinking.
