Delta flight attendant tackles would-be hijacker

A passenger on a Delta flight from LA to Nashville allegedly tried to breach the cockpit and hijack the plane Friday. According to reports, Delta Flight 386 crew members tackled and zip-tied the man before anyone was harmed. Cellphone video showed some of the encounter. The flight was diverted to Albuquerque, N.M., where airport police took the man into custody.

Great job! Thankful to the crew who saved us from a bad news day, and weeks of debating whether rectal probes were needed to ensure safety. Not kidding.

How do you hijack a plane with no weapons? TSA is so strict about that, to the point where you’d pretty much have your bare hands and makeshift weapons. Not the smartest idea

He doesn't sound like a hijacker. He sounds like an emotionally disturbed person having a panic attack over some fear regarding the flight. Listen. He just keeps repeating "We've gotta stop this plane!" Over and over. Still dangerous and disruptive but there's a big difference. Unlike a hijacker looking to cause harm, this guy thinks he's got to save everyone on the plane.

That's 'L.A. to Nashville,' not 'LA to Nashville.' I was scratching my head wondering why they flew all the way west to Albuquerque... LA is Louisiana...
