The Dutch Air Force deployed two F-16 fighter jets to escort a KLM flight to Schiphol on Saturday after a 29-year-old American on board the flight from Abu Dhabi to Amsterdam became aggressive. The man was overpowered by the KLM cabin crew and other passengers, RTL Nieuws reports.
The American man lost it when a purser told him to sit down, according to the broadcaster. He started punching everyone around him. Several passengers sustained minor injuries. One, who was hit several times, pressed charges against the man.
