With all the crazy stories surrounding the Airlines lately here’s a new twist. Kate Danyluk, a passenger on Alaska Airlines Flight 146 from Anchorage to Seattle knew something was wrong because the flight attendants kept going back and forth in the aisles and had put on rubber gloves. The plane returned to the airport due to a passenger not following flight attendant’s instructions. While no emergency was declared, the decision was made to return. Airport police and FBI met the plane when it landed shortly before 3am.
“The police came on and took him out the back door,” said Danyluk, an Anchorage teacher who was taking a “green escape” to attend a garden show in Seattle. “There was a subject on the aircraft that had barricaded or locked himself in the bathroom, the lavatory,” airport police Sgt. Darcy Perry said. “Flight attendants did find that the subject was naked,” Perry said, without elaborating. “I’d rather go back to Anchorage than have something happen,” Danyluk said. “Safety first.”
