Passenger Bethany Christakos

Passenger Bethany Christakos, An American Airlines flight attendant disrupted a flight Friday morning as it was about to take off from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, saying over the aircraft intercom system that the plane was going to crash, alluding to the Sept. 11 attacks and ranting about the airline’s bankruptcy reorganization, passengers said.

Passengers restrained the flight attendant until airport police arrived.

Two flight attendants were injured in the incident and were taken to a hospital. No passengers were injured, and they never were in danger, an airline spokeswoman said.

The flight attendant who caused the commotion continued to scream as she was handcuffed by police and placed into a police car, passengers said after they exited the plane at Chicago O’Hare International Airport.

“I will never get that sound of her screaming out of my head,” said Bethany Christakos, of Plano, Texas. “It took a good 10 minutes, it felt like, to get her off of the plane.”

Other passengers said the incident was defused in about 15 minutes but that it made them nervous. “We were pretty frightened,” said Greg Lozano, of Elmhurst, Ill. “I was glad we weren’t in the air. That was the primary thing I was thinking.”

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) confirmed there was an “altercation” involving American Airlines Flight 2332, which landed at Chicago O’Hare at 11:46 a.m. CST, more than an hour late.
