Many people travelling on Saturday to Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport from Los Angeles aboard a flight of this airliner told the media that a certain man wearing sunglasses made attempts to grab the handle of the plane’s exit door a short while after the pilot announced that they were descending.
One of the witnesses, Richard Munassi told the media that a lot of people were yelling inside the plane and therefore others felt that there was a fist fight.
Another passenger named Salman Elmi who was travelling on the same flight told the media that the passengers had subdued the man till flight attendants had proceeded to assist them in resolving the issue.
He added that the experience was quite crazy.
Munassi said that once the man was brought under control and was placed back into his seat, the pilot announced that they were going to make a quick landing. In fact he said that this was actually the hottest landing he had ever witnessed and everyone was absolutely silent on the flight. The tension level, naturally was quite high.
A spokesman for American Airlines told the media that FBI is currently investigating the incident.
Authorities have not yet released the name of the suspect or if he would be facing any charges as a consequence of his behavior.
