A man aboard a Lufthansa flight from Frankfurt to Belgrade has been arrested Sunday after threatening to open a plane door during the flight, Serbian authorities said.
Passengers quoted by Belgrade media said he banged on a cockpit door, threatening to bring down the plane while it was flying over Austria, if he was not allowed inside.
Lufthansa said the cabin crew and passengers on Flight 1406 managed to restrain him for the rest of the journey, adding that the plane doors can't be opened during a flight.
Lufthansa spokesman Andreas Bartels said the plane landed safely in Belgrade, and the passenger was handed over to local authorities.
