HOUSTON -- Ten passengers filed a lawsuit in New York on Wednesday against JetBlue Airways in connection with the incident in which a pilot had to be restrained after running through the cabin yelling during a New York-to-Las Vegas flight in March.
The lawsuit, filed in state Supreme Court in Queens, claims the airline was "grossly negligent" in allowing Capt. Clayton Osbon to fly, the Associated Press reported after obtaining a copy of the lawsuit.
Court clerks could not immediately locate or release the lawsuit Wednesday.
An airline spokeswoman said JetBlue was aware of the lawsuit but still reviewing it Wednesday. She said airline officials do not comment on pending litigation.
The lawsuit says passengers feared for their lives as Osbon ran through the cabin March 27 "yelling about September 11th, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Al Qaeda and terrorists," according to the Associated Press.
