There should be handcuffs in the cockpit available for use in situations like this. Passengers can hold him down, handcuff him, and leave him on the floor (it won't kill you to lay on the floor during landing) until the cops arrive to physically pick him up and carry him away.

And no jail time for this?

Maybe that thought getting shocked was enough? Either way, I don't think he is going to be able to get on another plane anytime soon.

Wow! He was too drunks! He can't drinks a beer anymore. He had enough already. I do not appreciate for his behavior. He cannot be threatened to FAs.

There are flex cuffs in strategic locations in the cabin. Plenty good for single use restraints.

Hopefully the guy will be banned for life by WN on top of whatever else befalls him.

That's right. The cockpit is the wrong place for equipment like this. If there are one or more passengers that are disruptive enough to need to be restrained, you don't want to have to open the cockpit door to deal with the situation.

He looks like exactly the type of guy who would say this to someone.

Absolutely! He will be banned flying for life. He cannot threatened to flight attendant. His behavior is not acceptable.

I hope this guy is permanently banned from flying WN. I am sorry that he has PTSD but he should not be flying if he doesn't take his meds (and they don't mix well with alcohol).
