He told reporters that the case was "just awful ", before going on to say that "it will rock the community of Australia". The 27-year-old mother with a troubled history seems more known about than really known in the town of 8000 people.

But, she said, "I think it's important to put ourselves in the position of the captain, who is in the cockpit about to begin a five-hour flight over the Pacific, when he or she is informed of an issue in the back of the plane".

Airport officers met the aircraft at the gate and conducted an investigation with the FBI. The flight attendant said the cabin was "on secured lock-down".

Passenger Claudia Rodriguez, a Dallas resident, said the airline did not provide much information during the incident.

The man was reportedly allowed to fly to Hawaii with another airline on a later flight.

"I thought it was ridiculous", Eileen Berstrom, another passenger, told CBS News.

George Enriques, a Maui-bound passenger aboard Hawaiian Airlines flight 7, was sitting across the aisle from the elderly, male passenger in seat 42A who was escorted off of the plane. "First of all, it costs $12,000 for them to land here, and it's a $12 blanket".
