    Default JetBlue flight diverted to Texas after ‘incoherent’ captain subdued

    JetBlue flight from New York to Las Vegas was diverted to Texas on Tuesday after the plane's captain became incoherent and had to be subdued.

    JetBlue flight 191, which departed John F. Kennedy International Airport at 7:28 a.m., was diverted to Amarillo due to what the airline called "a medical situation involving the captain."

    According to CBSNewYork.com citing a federal official, the co-pilot became concerned and "convinced the captain to leave the cockpit and then locked him out." After the captain "started pounding on the cockpit door," he was subdued by an off-duty NYPD officer and an off-duty pilot. The plane landed at 11:11 a.m. in Amarillo, JetBlue said.

    Videos purportedly shot by a passenger and uploaded to YouTube show a chaotic scene.

    According to Amarillo Globe-News, the FBI in Dallas is investigating the incident. Passengers told the paper that the captain "raced inside an airliner screaming obscenities and shouting about threats from al-Qaida and bombs aboard the aircraft."

    He "went to a restroom, then emerged, shouting, 'Iraq, al-Qaida, terrorism, we're all going down," the paper reported.

    The captain, whose name has not been released, was "removed from the aircraft and taken to a local medical facility," JetBlue said.

    I have to get molested by the TSA every trip to the airport, but a guy with psychiatric issues gets to fly the plane?

    What, pilots are aren't allowed to have mental illness? People aren't perfect, this includes many professions where the employees have others lives in their hands.

    People love to slam the airlines, there is an easy solution. Just drive or better yet take a train or a bus!

    I'm not sure what you are upset about. Yes people with mental issues shouldn't fly planes. End of story.

    That goes for train conductors and bus drivers

    I don't think we've had all the info on this story as yet - but it's highly possible that this particular individual didn't have any diagnosed mental health problems. People can just 'snap', you know! And that may have been what happened here. I may be wrong, but I'm sure I read somewhere that airline pilots are the second most likely professionals to commit suicide, after dentists. Apparently, it's down to the high stress-levels encountered. And before anyone asks, dentists are vulnerable because of the frequently fraught patients with whom they have to deal!

    Gosh! I hope the media doesn't blow this out of proportion. We've got high school protest mobs wrecking drug stores in Florida. Obesity and cancer risk is neck & neck with smoking now. Put down that brownie and light a Marlboro Red Label 100 and turn down the sound of the evening news.

    taking a bus from NYC to Las Vegas not really the most reasonable thing in the world to do unless you got a few days to kill.

    My response, if your post was not sarcastic in tone:

    Um. So if you were on that flight and you saw the pilot freaking out like that you mean to tell me you would just sit there and go, "Well now............that's terrible....look at all those people making a fuss.........oh sorry to wake you up, honey.....our pilot is going off the fucking deep end saying we're going down and to be honest...... it's rather sad to watch......he probably doesn't have a perfect life....".

    Sorry, but I expect people with occupations in which other peoples' lives are in their hands to be mentally stable. Ambulance drivers/paramedics, cops, fire fighters, and yes.....and possibly the #1 profession in which I want the person to be on the straight and narrow.....PILOTS.

    I don't blame the pilot. It is sad to see, if he indeed has mental issues. I blame the airline. How they let this guy past their screening protocols, I have no clue.

    My response, if your post was sarcastic in tone:

    I heard he had tacos for breakfast and just wanted to take a quick saucy shit before engaging himself into his duty's. Happens to all of us sooner or later out in the field... but he's a PILOT!
