Lock him up and throw away the key.

And it should be mentioned that there were religious motivations behind this as was reported by other reliable news sources. I'll let the readers guess the religion if JT doesn't want to mention it.

This maniac's name - Mohammed Arif. He was going from person to person (if they were Muslim) demanding that they stated they were a "Slave to Allah".

Terrifying for the passengers. Lock him away for many, many years please - and a total flight ban from all commercial carriers.

I'll let the readers guess the religion.

I had already guessed after reading this....

One of the passengers, Velutha Parambath, said the man had been drawing attention to himself before takeoff by praying aloud.

Mental health problems and religion are a terrible mix.

If he had shoved me after making a complete nuisance of himself, let’s just say….I wouldn’t be receptive of it.

So no bomb, just angry? Overreaction sometimes, I have a problem about the people pushing the seat back on my knee in economy class so I can understand that there’s a stress when you Fly.

Recently, during a short flight from Europe to Turkey (I was coming back to Japan), one guy (in the business class by the way) quite loudly prayed the entire flight. He was obviously agitated, kept on asking flight attendants for something, then back to prayer. Nothing happened, probably he was just afraid of flying, but it was very awkward and uncomfortable for other passengers, and I felt quite scared myself.

My granny was scared to death of flying, so she would buy first class tickets and drink like a fish the whole way, so I’m told.

Lengthy prison time, lifetime flight and public transport ban, and sequestrate all of his assets to be shared amongst the passengers that he scared and delayed. The three hour wait on the tarmac was indefensible. They should have been straight in there. Reminds me of the cops waiting outside that US school whilst the kids were being shot.
