“The flight attendants just were really heroic, ” Lorenzen said.

Uskanil was subdued for the rest of the flight and arrested in Honolulu when the plane landed with a military escort.

"It caused worry on the plane, more curiosity than fear I would say because he wasn't acting irrationally but you could tell something was kind off about him as well", he said. A flight attendant was credited for stopping the man in the aisle with a beverage cart before he got to the cockpit door. Uskanil, 25, had already been cited for the trespassing charges at Los Angeles International Airport prior to boarding the flight.

Airline says they do not know of any injuries. Police said he had been drinking but did not meet the criteria for a drunk-in-public violation.

Due to a disturbance during the flight, the crew requested that law enforcement meet the aircraft upon landing in Honolulu.
