An Alaska Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing after a passenger became aggressive and threatened to kill all the other passengers on board. Alaska Airlines Flight 422 left from Seattle-Tacoma airport just after 11 p.m., bound for Chicago O’Hare, according to data from flight tracking website FlightRadar24.
About 20 minutes after takeoff, the male passenger became “extremely belligerent and physically aggressive,” a spokesperson for the airline told Business Insider.
The passenger left his seat and began walking the aisle of the Airbus A320, according to the Seattle Times. Video recorded by another passenger and published by the Seattle Times showed the mask-wearing passenger shouting that he would kill everyone on board “in the name of black Jesus.”
