Airline passenger identified after storming cockpit, sparking hijack alert

The airline passenger who stormed the cockpit and threatened to “kill everyone” on a Turkey-bound flight has been identified, according to a report.

Chloe Haines, 25, sparked a hijack alert on a June 22 flight with Jet2 airlines when she tried to open the planes emergency exit door, The Sun reported.

The cabin crew restrained Haines as she started to scream, “Im going to kill everyone” 45 minutes into the flight from Londons Stansted Airport, officials said.

Essex Police arrested the woman on charges of common assault, criminal damage and endangering an aircraft.

Haines, who was released on bail, had been convicted two weeks before the incident for drunken driving, The Sun reported.
