American Airlines passenger provokes a fight in mid-flight after denying the beer, threatening to kill the seatmate

A restless American Airlines pbadenger caused quite a scandal in the skies when his beer request was denied by a flight attendant, prompting him to push and threaten to kill his seatmate in an altercation that eventually led to a fight between the two men in full flight.

On May 23, flight 1293 from Saint Croix to the Miami International Airport changed for the worst thirty minutes. Apparently, a pbadenger identified as Jason Felix in court documents shared with Fox News by American Airlines was denied a beer by a male flight attendant after the employee heard Felix making a "commotion" in the bathroom.


Call the flight attendant a "f *** t" when returning to his seat, the pbadenger pressed the call button and asked for a beer, which denied the stewardess. Felix continued calling the crew member "f **** t" and "b ****".

"You could feel the tension increasing, so I decided to use my iPhone in case something happened," witness and pbadenger Bill Bolduc told WSVN. "I was asking for more beer and more alcohol."

According to the documents, Felix began to "push" against the legs of his male seatmate, trying to get out of his own seat to "face" the stewardess. 19659007] AER LINGUS PLANE, BEING TOWED BY AIRPORT WORKERS, DIRECTLY DRAGS TO THE CONCRETE POLO

The men began to fight and another pbadenger jumped in to intervene before Felix was held by the flight crew.

After the plane landed safely in Miami, Felix was immediately arrested by Miami-Dade police, who handed him over to the FBI.


After the terrifying incident, Bolduc told WSVN that pbadengers should "console" themselves about the way the American Airlines flight crew He handled the commotion. [19659005] "Calm under pressure, it was very impressive," he said. "The situation could have been even worse."

"We thank our 1293 flight crew for caring for our customers after a pbadenger caused an interruption, we are proud of the work they do every day," an American Airlines spokesman told Fox News.

Felix charges were filed for violating interference with flight crew members and badistants and in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida.
