Passengers on the flight from Los Angeles to Honolulu told the Associated Press that Anil Uskanil, 25, a Turkish national, tried to move from his seat to first class and, while there, left a laptop in a seat pocket.
A few hours into that flight, passengers told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, the man was successfully subdued by a flight attendant and passengers as he was trying to rush into the first-class, to approach the cabin.
Passengers, including an off duty police officer helps subdue the man, using duct tape to secure him to his seat for the remainder of the flight.
The incident also prompted Pacific Command to dispatch a pair of F-22 fighter jets to intercept the passenger plane.
The plane landed safely in Honolulu at 11:35 a.m. local time (0135GMT), said local daily the Honolulu Star-Advertiser. Airport police determined he had been drinking, but he did not meet the criteria for being drunk in public, LAX police said.
Due to a disturbance during the flight, the crew requested that law enforcement meet the aircraft upon landing in Honolulu.
Uskanli reportedly wraps a blanket around his head and attempts to get to the cockpit but is stopped by a flight attendant before he gets into first class. He was spotted by a contractor and later arrested by Los Angeles Airport Police officials for misdemeanor trespassing, cited and released. The flight attendant was still in the economy section with the drink cart and told Uskanli to please stop and "go back to your seat".
The incidents is still under investigation but officials said there were not other threats to the American Airlines or any other aircraft. He refused to comply with the instructions of a crew member who asked him to return to his post and then he seemed to be moving to the cockpit door.
He said the man was pushing against the cart, trying to get through. A statement from the Department of Homeland Security explained that the passenger was arrested after the plane landed. He was then restrained with duct tape for the rest of the flight.
