attack one of "worst in airline's history". she bumped his seat, he punched her face

REVEALED: Female AA flight attendant punched and left with broken bones 'was attacked by male first class passenger for bumping into his seat' as CEO brands violent incident one of worst in airline's history

American Airlines' CEO called Wednesday's attack on a female flight attendant 'one of the worst' in the airline's history after a male passenger assaulted her

The incident occurred on a flight from New York City JFK to Orange County, California, causing the Airbus plane to be diverted to Denver

The flight attendant allegedly bumped into the passenger, who has yet to be named, before apologizing

However, the passenger then pursued her down the aisle and punched her twice in face - leaving her with broken bones on her face and nose
A picture appears to show the man being duct-taped to a seat by crew members
The flight was met at the gate by law enforcement who arrested the man, who has not been named
The flight attendant was transported to a local hospital, while American Airlines said has banned the man and will prosecute 'to the full extent of the law'

4. Air Marshals most likely on that flight

Can't be sure, but highly likely that security would have been on that flight, though maybe not in first class.

11. There is roughly a 5% chance that an air martial is on your flight

Chances are higher than 5 if flying into DC or NY, lower that that for most other places.

5. It's AA

They will get a federal tax bailout to solve their security problems. They are the poster children for sucking up tax payer money.

9. Yeah?

You’d have stood up and beaten him into a pile of “sticks?”

On an airplane. In the first class cabin. With many others in seats around. Mmhmm.

8. So It Wasn't Even Over A Mask?

The attendant bumped into his seat while walking by in those narrow aisles?

What in the world set that guy off? A seat bump? Seriously?

19. First class passenger status may have come with sense of entitlement.

The last time I flew with my elderly mother, who uses a walker, some first class guy nearly lost his shit because she was allowed to board ahead of him along with other ADA individuals and people with little kids.
