Man on New Orleans Flight Is Arrested

Man on New Orleans Flight Is Arrested

Quote:
A plane was diverted Saturday after air marshals arrested a passenger after he began shouting "Majority rules! Turn the plane around!" and walked toward an exit door during a flight from New York's LaGuardia Airport to New Orleans.

I wonder if the flight was late or if it was operating on schedule?

Anyway, I'm not sure what their concern is with the exit door. You can't open it during cruise although I can understand the desire to not have some crazy guy screwing with it.

What's going to stop you from opening it in cruise? If anything, you've got the pressure differential on your side...
