The Formerly Friendly Skies
United's old slogan of 'fly the friendly skies' took on a whole new meaning back in March. It was then that a New Jersey man allegedly leapt out of his seat on a San Francisco-bound flight and threatened to kill the pilot. Fortunately he was stopped by a handful of passengers who restrained him with duct tape and handcuffs. It appears to be the ol' demon drink that was behind his outburst and he'll be in court in December charged with two misdemeanor counts of assault.
