Criminal complaint filed against man who assaulted Delta flight attendant

Delta flight security incident leaves 3 injured

But Port of Seattle Airport spokesman Perry Cooper said the plane turned back after a passenger attacked a flight attendant in the first class cabin. A flight attendant called a "Code 3" and asked for help from passengers as well to subdue Hudek while the plane swung back towards Seattle.

According to the special agent's report, Hudek came out again only two minutes later when he suddenly lunged for the exit door and grabbing at the handle in an attempt to open it.

A physical altercation ensued between Hudek and two flight attendants, one of whom he punched in the face at least two times. A flight attendant smashed wine bottles over Hudek's head but to no avail.

Another flight attendant hit Hudek over the head with two bottles of wine, breaking at least one.

Delta flight attendants receive seven to eight weeks of initial training and recurrent training of which a "significant portion" focuses on the safety of passengers and flight attendants, according to a Delta spokesperson.

"According to the complaint obtained by the Times, Hudek did not appear "impacted" after the attendant struck him with the wine bottle and yelled, "'Do you know who I am?' or something to that extent".


Hudek is the son of a Delta airlines employee.

Hudek allegedly said after getting smacked with the bottle. As the aircraft, Boeing 767-300ER, a twin-aisle returned around 7.40 pm to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, the passenger who tried to seek entry was taken by law enforcement officers by law after the flight returning to the gate, said Delta.

Delta Flight 129 was back in the air Friday morning, heading to Beijing.

A flight attendant and a passenger were taken to the hospital with severe facial injuries, according to the complaint. The Times reported that Delta Air Lines' chief operating officer, Gil West, commended the crew "for their fast action in keeping our customers and each other safe in a potentially risky situation". However a flight attendant involved in Thursday's incident said that if the altercation had occurred at a lower altitude, the door might have opened.

He now faces a felony charge of interfering with a flight crew, which carries a possible sentence of up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Hudek was able to push the emergency release lever on the door about halfway, and several passengers said they feared for their lives, according to the statement.
