Man Tries to Bite Flight Attendant, Then Jumps Out of Plane Onto Tarmac


At this point, I’m not sure if it is harder to be an airline employee or a passenger, but either way, flying sounds pretty unappealing these days.

Yesterday, a man allegedly tried to bite an American Airlines flight attendant…and then he opened an exit door and jumped off the plane.

Thankfully, the plane was sitting on the tarmac at the time the incident occurred.

Tun Lon Sein, who was traveling from Thailand, was on American Airlines flight 5242 at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport in North Carolina.

According to the criminal complaint, the plane was sitting in a hold spot on the tarmac when Sein got out of his seat, went to the main aircraft door, and tried to open it. A flight attendant and two other passengers got out of their seats and attempted to get Sein to return to his seat.

Sein then tried to bite the flight attendant’s hand.

The man then jumped from the plane onto an active ramp, the complaint said.

“Sein spoke little or no English during these events,” the complaint says, “However, circumstances surrounding his actions show that Sein understood the directions of the flight attendant, as well as the safety requirements of commercial air travel.”

Authorities said that is Sein is found guilty of violating a federal transportation law, he faces a fine and up to 20 years in prison.
