UPDATED: The airline is now claiming that the passenger was "just sick". Ummmm no matter how sick I am on a flight, I would open the door and let the pilot/attendants know I am sick. Add to it the fact that this guy was on the SAME FLIGHT as the Christmas Day Terrorist and also from Nigeria. And oddly enough he had not one bag with him on a trip all he way from Nigeria????? Me smells another test run.
Once more same as before?
"Metro Airport spokesman John Witner said there was a report of suspicious activity on the Delta/Northwest flight 253 from Amsterdam Sunday. That is the same flight number as the flight that a Nigerian man was suspected of attempting to blow up over Detroit on Christmas Day.
All 257 passengers and 12 crew have deplaned safely, said Delta spokeswoman Susan Elliott. The flight landed safely in Detroit at 12:34 p.m. Sunday.
The flight crew requested that law enforcement meet the aircraft after a passenger on the plane became verbally disruptive, said Elliott.
The Associated Press reported that the incident lead to the arrest of a Nigerian man, who is now in custody."
Apparently this man locked himself in the bathroom for an hour.
WHY was he allowed to stay locked in the bathroom for an hour??? That's MY question.
