Like I said, yesterday, it’s absolutely no coincidence that there have been so many of these passenger threats, disruptions, and “testing the system” by Arab Muslims on flights in the last two months. I warned you this would happen when US Airways was forced to settle with the Flying Imams.
Here’s the latest incident, with the unruly passenger referring to 9/11 and threatening the crew, though we don’t know yet his ethnicity or religion:
An unruly passenger was escorted off a Pittsburgh-to-Paris flight after the plane was diverted to Canada late Thursday night.
Delta Airlines Flight 188 landed in St. John’s, Newfoundland, and the passenger was escorted off the plane by police, according to a report by WTAE Channel 4’s news exchange partners at the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
The man — who has not yet been identified — threatened crew members and made references to 9/11, but left the plane without incident and said nothing, according to a flight captain quoted in the Trib’s report.
The report says he was drunk. But how many drunk passengers refer to 9/11? I’ll wait to see his name before I decide if it was the alcohol that made him do it.
