Woman is duct-taped to her seat after trying to open plane door during a flight

During a two-hour American Airlines flight, a woman tried to open the plane door mid-flight, for which she was tied up with duct tape.

The woman, who also bit a flight attendant, was tied to the seat until all the passengers left the plane.

Passengers on American Airlines Flight 1774 on July 6 will long remember the trip. The crew had to tape and tie a woman to the seat who tried to open the aircraft door mid-flight.

After the incident, the passenger attacked the flight attendants, for which they had to immobilize her until the plane landed and the rest of the passengers disembarked.

The unusual scene caught the attention of the rest of the people who were traveling on the flight and the event was soon known through social networks. It was a TikTok user (lol. ariee) who posted the video that has spread like wildfire. In it, the scene is perfectly seen: while the passengers are leaving the plane through the central aisle of the aircraft, a woman is tied to her seat and her mouth is covered with adhesive tape to silence her protests.

The airline company clarified what happened later through the following statement:

“While flying from Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) to Charlotte (CLT) on July 6, the crew aboard American Airlines Flight 1774 reported a potential security issue after a customer attempted to open the front gate and He physically assaulted him, bit and injured a flight attendant. “

According to American Airlines, the controversial decision was made to immobilize the passenger and gag her to maintain “the safety of other customers and our classification. “

After the landing in Charlotte, the police and emergency personnel were responsible for taking the woman who starred in the altercation mid-flight.

This is not the first incident at the airline. Just a month ago, stewardesses and flight attendants had to endure comments and insults from tourists traveling to North Carolina.

“What a shame on the passengers who have made this flight hell for the flight attendants,” said a cabin crew member at the end of the journey.
