My recap home… guy tried departing the plane, guy attacks Stewardess, guy gets zip-tied, swarmed by police and arrested… OH MY PLANE WAS DELAYED. @SouthwestAir really want some sort of compensation for this bull shit.

Hi there. We regret that you were unable to travel as scheduled, and it sounds like we need to take a closer look at what was going on. Do you mind sending over a DM with your confirmation number? -Mike
