Pilot Trapped In Bathroom, What started out as a misunderstanding on a New York-bound Delta Airlines jet ended with an emergency landing and the near involvement of fighter jets.

According to reports, the pilot of a plane headed to JFK Airport Wednesday night found himself trapped inside the plane’s bathroom after the lock became jammed.
The pilot, who was not immediately identified, managed to make enough noise to attract a nearby passenger. The pilot reportedly gave the passenger the security code to open the cckpit door to inform the co-pilot about the situation.

The passenger, who was described by the New York Post as having a heavy accent, frightened the co-pilot and prompted him to alert air traffic controllers who cleared him for an emergency landing.

When the plane landed, FBI agents were on the ground waiting to investigate the incident.
