JetBlue Responds to Pilot ‘Panic Attack’

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Mashable has posted a short clip from the incident on a Las Vegas-bound JetBlue flight in which the captain had what some are calling a “panic attack.” The clip shows a relatively calm scene. Passengers are, of course, looking to see what’s going on, but it’s not the chaos one could imagine.
