Published

on

Airlines recognized the 18th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks with tributes to victims on websites and Twitter accounts.

United CEO Oscar Munoz posted a message on the airline’s website recalling the tragic terrorist attack.

“I know each of us in the United family marks this difficult moment in our own way,” wrote Munoz. “Still, we all share a common commitment to honor how our brothers and sisters left us and also celebrate what they gave to us during their lives. We remember their professionalism and heroism. We cherish their camaraderie and friendship. We carry with us the examples they set forth, especially in the heroism and bravery displayed by so many on that terrible day. Above all, we understand a simple truth: While thousands of our fellow human beings lost their lives in New York City, Arlington and Shanksville, the attacks of September 11th were aimed at all people of peace and goodwill, everywhere. They were attacks on the values that make life worth living, as well as the shared purpose that make us proud of what we do as members of the United family: connecting people and uniting the world.”

United also posted a separate remembrance to Twitter, which linked to the statement: “We all share a common commitment to honor how our brothers and sisters left us on September 11, 2001, while also celebrating what they gave to us during their lives,” read the tweet.

American Airlines, which, like United, lost a plane in the September 11 attacks, posted a tribute to Twitter.

“Today, we honor the lives and legacies of our colleagues, family members and loved ones the world lost 18 years ago,” said the tweet.

Southwest Airlines recognized the solemn day with a simple tweet of #NeverForget.

JetBlue also marked the September 11 anniversary with a simple statement that we will not forget.

“Yesterday, today, tomorrow, we remember.”

“It was very frightening for this to unfold in mid-air,” one witness said. “It was a violent confrontation and an area of the cabin was covered in blood. The cabin crew did a great job to try to contain it. But some were reduced to tears because of what unfolded.”

The flight landed in Edinburgh, Scotland from Copenhagen at around 1:30 in the afternoon, where the two men were quickly detained by police.

A spokesman for the airline said “We can confirm that flight EZY6980 from Copenhagen to Edinburgh was met by police on arrival as a result of two passengers on board behaving disruptively.

“EasyJet’s cabin crew are trained to assess and evaluate all situations and to act quickly and appropriately to ensure that the safety of the flight and other passengers is not compromised at any time.

The spokesman added, “The safety and wellbeing of customers and crew is our highest priority.”

It is unclear at this time what had prompted the fight. According to a spokesman for the Scotland Police, the two men, aged 28 and 42, are charged for breach of the peace.

“A report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal,” the spokesman said.
