BOSTON, Mass. – Air travel authorities say a passenger tried to open an emergency door on a Delta flight from Orlando, Florida, to Boston but was subdued by another passenger.

Boston Logan International Airport spokesman Phil Orlandella says it’s unclear why the passenger tried to open the door Tuesday night on the Airbus 320 flight out of Orlando International Airport.

Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines Inc spokeswoman Susan Elliott says an off-duty police officer subdued the passenger and was detaining him while the plane continued on its journey to Boston.

Delta crew members called authorities in Boston to report the disorderly passenger aboard Flight 1102.

State police officers were waiting at Logan to take the man into custody and question him.

Logan is one of the busiest U.S. airports, handling tens of millions of passengers each year.
