When are some people going to realize that airline and airport security are not messing around!? Given the current climate, it’s not a good idea to get unruly anywhere near an airport or on a plane. Yet, today we hear of two more flights that have been diverted because of jackass-like behavior.
An AirTran flight from ATL to SFO was diverted to Colorado today due to to an intoxicated passenger who became unruly and locked himself in the bathroom. Two F-16 fighter planes were deployed by NORAD to escort the flight to Colorado Springs Airport.
Meanwhile, a Hawaiian Airlines flight from Las Vegas to Honolulu was diverted to Los Angeles early this morning after a man began harassing a woman on board. The male passenger was removed from the flight and the flight resumed to Honolulu an hour and 10 minutes later.
Passengers arriving in Honolulu said the plane was already over the Pacific Ocean when the pilot announced that they would be landing in Los Angeles. Some said a flight attendant told passengers that a sex assault had taken place aboard the plane.
