A man "went berzerk" during a British Airways flight from Heathrow to Dubai last night, claiming he had a bomb and was going to blow up the plane.
The incident occurred around five hours into flight BA105, when the man began spitting at his fellow passengers.
He was restrained by five crew members and the help of a passenger, who between them handcuffed him and covered him with a blanket.
Guy started spitting at everyone which is why crew tried to cover him with a blanket. Then started screaming he had a bomb/all going to die.— Steve Penk (@StevePenk) January 6, 2016
The BA crew on board were amazing apparently. Thank you to all the crew on BA flight 105 last night x— Steve Penk (@StevePenk) January 6, 2016
Although passengers were shaken by the incident, it did not affect the flight, which landed as scheduled in Dubai early this morning.
A BA spokeswoman told City A.M.: "Our customers and crews deserve to enjoy their flights, and not to suffer any form of abuse.
"This sort of behaviour will absolutely not be tolerated, and the appropriate action will always be taken."
