By Busisiwe Mtabane

A man tried to hijack a South African Airways domestic flight early today that was from Cape Town on its way to Johannesburg. SAA has confirmed that the incident occurred on SA 322 but the man was subdued before he could enter the cockpit. IOL quotes SAA spokesperson Jacqui O’Sullivan as saying that it appears a passenger threatened a crew member with some sort of weapon demanding access to the cockpit. O’Sullivan says the flight turned back to Cape Town and landed safely. Reports states that Officials say no passenger was injured in the incident.
