    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A passenger aboard an Icelandair flight had to be tied down by fellow passengers after going on a rampage Thursday.


    According to Icelandic media outlet MBL.is, the passenger began acting out two hours before the flight was set to land. He reportedly had been drinking heavily, and allegedly began ranting, spitting and threatening the crew before he was restrained.


    Andy Ellwood, a contributor with Forbes, was aboard the flight and snapped a photo which quickly went viral.


    On his Tumblr account, Ellwood wrote the passenger “drank all of his duty free liquor on the flight,†“tried to choke the woman next to him†and was “screaming the plane was going to crash.â€


    The photo shows a man bound to his chair with plastic ties and tape.


    The passenger was escorted off the flight when it landed at JFK.


    On Friday afternoon, Port Authority police at Newark Liberty Airport removed a woman from a United flight arriving from Stockholm after reports she was intoxicated and disorderly.


    Port Authority spokesman Ron Marsico said she was taken to a hospital while police investigated.

    There is no reason post 9/11 that alcohol(a flammable liquid) should be allowed on a plane....none!

    all they need to do is turn the inside of the plane into a huge vaporizer. Have a ton of snacks for sale and there will never be another problem on a flight again

    Sure do, they confiscate anything over 3 ounces, but they'll happily sell you 120 proof alcohol.

    Hypocritical bullshit!

    They should have had Sal give the guy a chocolate bandit mask while he was tied up to teach him a lesson.

    Flammable?! What the hell do you think they're serving. Most liquor is 80 proof (40% alcohol). Put a match to that and all you're gonna get is a wet match.

    My point is making a few bucks is more important to the industry then passenger safety, try using a lighter next time Sport....Southern Comfort burns nice.

    :haha:i'd like to know why he wasn't charged with a crime (i thought there's zero tolerance for nonsense on flights) and they haven't released his name. he does look hilarious all duct-taped to the seat.
