Vancouver-bound Lufthansa flight was forced to divert from Munich to Hamburg after a passenger’s erratic behaviour threatened safety.
One of the passengers on board flight 476 – Jessica Gares – says it was a scary situation for people on board.
“The feeling on board was tense, the flight attendants were walking back and forward. They did their best to remain calm and confident, but you could feel that sort of intense feeling in the atmosphere which was a little bit scary.”
She says within the first few minutes of flight she saw the man walk up to the front while the plane was still ascending and heard yelling.
So she was not surprised when he turned out to be the unruly passenger.
Hamburg police and ambulance services were waiting to deal with him when the plane landed in the city before resuming the trip to Vancouver.
