    IMO that AA pilot handled that as best as he could but a part of me wished he would have thrown down and beat the crap out of the pax.

    When I was a regional pilot, some passenger grabbed me by the tie and told me to check him in. I told him that if he didn't let go I would "slap the sh-- out you" and I guess I looked psychopathic enough to enjoy taking him to that Ghetto University so he only got detained.

    Okay, was that self-restraint, or should the pilot demonstrate his Jeet-Kun-Do skills?

    Listen, at this point you're going to jail no matter what. You can let go of me or you can go to jail with a headache, it's up to you...

    "You're going to toss salad in the pokey with all your teeth or without, your choice!"

    But after last week I think passengers are looking for any type of stimulus to get #triggered

    What?!? No signs of at least a dozen people with cell phones filming with one making commentary such as "ooooh dayum!!! World star!!!!"

    Must be fake news.

    And to think this guy was just trying to go home after a long four day and now having to burn one of his two days off to come back and give a statement.

    Can't help but think how much pain the bottom of a LW bag would cause, if directed towards the area of the shins/etc.

    That passenger actually looked like a fairly big dude. I can't judge the pilot for not hitting back. I mean I only pick on people smaller than me.

    Best part is what looks like a security guard just standing there at the top left.

    Looked like TSA. They aren't allowed to physically restrain, or even get involved I think.

    Think "Security Monitor".

    "Hall monitor" is what we called them in school.

    The ahole getting his cell phone out and trying to take a pic of the ID makes me most mad of all.

    God, I hate the social media age. Every d-bag that was picked on too much in high school is now a badass with a camera phone because he's going to take pictures of your ID and your license plates and "get you fired". All this because he thought the pilot didn't get out of his way quick enough which was probably a matter of seconds. How ridiculous is this?

    Pilot should be commended. The last thing we need is a video of a pilot brawling with a pax, even if he's justifiably defending himself, after what happened with United. Sucks that he had to swallow his pride, but he saved himself from being an inadvertant YouTube star and an s-storm of negative PR for AA.

    To play devil's advocate (and it's a stretch here), we don't know what happened on the plane to lead him to want to get his badge info. Certainly doesn't excuse his violence, but I've certainly run into folks at the Airport (not crew, though) whose behaviors lead me to make note of their names.

    Maybe he was trying to get his name to ask for a LOR. We all can't bake cakes....
