A first class passenger was reportedly hit over the head with wine bottles to subdue him after attempting to open the emergency exit mid-air. 

A Delta Airlines flight from Seattle to Beijing was allegedly forced to return to the US after the 23-year-old man also assaulted a flight attendant on the plane.

When the cabin crew member tried to stop him after he attempted to open the exit 45 minutes in to the flight, he is said to have thrown a punch, according to the Telegraph.

A passenger on the aircraft told KIRO 7 News: “They broke two bottles of wine on his head. I tried to choke him and he just threw me off like a rag doll.”

Other travellers told of a “serious fight” towards the front of the plane.

Seattle-Tacoma International Airport told the newspaper the man was restrained until the plane landed safely. 

Delta Airlines in statement said: “The passenger was restrained on board and was removed from the flight by law enforcement without further incident.”
