A flight attendant on an American Airways flight from Los Cabos Worldwide Airport in San José del Cabo to Los Angeles Worldwide Airport was assaulted by an unruly passenger.

The person was arrested upon arrival in Los Angeles.

“American Airways flight 377 with service from San José del Cabo (SJD) to Los Angeles (LAX) was met by regulation enforcement upon arrival attributable to an unruly passenger who bodily assaulted a flight attendant,” the airline mentioned in a press release.  “The plane landed safely and taxied to the gate the place regulation enforcement eliminated the person.”

Video posted on social media exhibits the flight attendant strolling away from the attacker, who runs up behind him and lands a punch at the back of the flight attendant’s head earlier than retreating to his seat.

“Acts of violence towards our staff members usually are not tolerated by American Airways,” the service mentioned.  “The person concerned on this incident won’t ever be allowed to journey with us sooner or later, and we are going to work intently with regulation enforcement of their investigation.”

The attacker’s id was not instantly accessible.

The investigation of the assault is being undertaken by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for the reason that assault occurred within the air.  The unruly passenger was detained after the flight landed on suspicion of interfering with a flight crew, which is a federal offense.
