A recent Alaska Airlines flight had to turn around after a passenger became belligerent and aggressive, threatening to kill everyone on the aircraft.Alaska Flight 422 departed Seattle-Tacoma International Airport at 11.10pm Saturday, bound for Chicago O’Hare, KOMO News reports.
During the ascent, an unnamed male passenger became disruptive and acted “extremely belligerent and physically aggressive,” a spokesperson for the airline told Fox News.
About 20 minutes into the flight, the man reportedly walked in the aisle and yelled, “I’m going to kill everybody on this plane. Die in the name of Jesus!,” according to the Seattle Times.
The man was swiftly subdued by flight crew and two passengers, including a law enforcement officer, the spokesperson said. No one was injured during the unruly passenger’s outburst, the Times said.
From there, the plane turned around and landed at Sea-Tac airport once again.
Upon deplaning, the man was taken into custody by Port of Seattle Police without incident and booked into King County Jail for harassment.
Alaska cancelled Flight 422 and booked all passengers on the next available trip to Chicago.
