A fellow passenger described his behavior as “really intimidating”.
Another said he “made the air blue” with his language.
They claimed: “He became aggressive towards the stewardesses when it became clear he would not be served alcohol.
“At one point he left his seat and started pacing up and down the aisle despite being told to sit – he even ran behind the cabin crew curtains. It was crazy behavior.”

Cabin crew reportedly radioed ahead, and police boarded the plane as soon as it landed.
