Passengers aboard a Continental Airlines flight bound for Houston Tuesday sprang into action to help a flight attendant having trouble with an unruly passenger. Twenty minutes after the plane departed Portland, pilots returned to the city where the FBI was waiting.
Passengers said the unruly man was a problem from the beginning.[…]
At some point, according to the report, the Middle Eastern man started screaming at a woman.“He was screaming, ‘Allah is great, Allah is great,’” said a passenger. “And it kind of worries you when that happens, but believe me, there were enough men to hold him down.”
