It's happening again, this time on Delta: A Boston-bound passenger tried to open a plane's emergency door on Tuesday night, the Associated Press reports.

It's unclear why a passenger on Flight 1102, en route from Orlando to Boston, wanted to open the door on the flight, Boston Logan spokesman Phil Orlandella told the AP.

Nevertheless, an off-duty cop subdued the passenger and kept him detained until the flight landed in Boston.

Flight crew alerted the airport to the disturbance; the passenger was arrested for interfering with flight crew upon landing.

This is now the third time in a week that there have been disturbances mid-air.

On Sunday, a Delta flight was diverted to Albuquerque after a "potential security threat" was established.

Also on Sunday, a now-famous American Airlines passenger, Rageit Almurisi, stormed the cockpit door. Almurisi has since been denied bail over claims that he yelled "God is great!" while on board.

To all dum basses out there;you cannot physically open a door on an airliner when flying.The cabin is pressureized and the doors fit like a cork from the inside so the pressure wont let the door open, it actually makes the door fit tighter !!!!!

because of 9/11 the sheep has been convinced to support a war that has killed 150,000 civilians in Iraq only! 150,000 for 2,000 Americans? really? How do you justify this? Iraqis should be pissing on your 9/11 site for this.
