The court heard that flight attendants Luk Ka-chun, 26, and Leung Hiu-lun, 37, saw Manselius walking towards the cockpit at about 1.15am, almost six hours into Cathay Pacific flight 270 on February 14.
The passenger's head was wrapped in two economy class blankets, leaving only his eyes visible, and he wore another blanket on his back like a cape. In one hand was a large Toblerone chocolate bar that Manselius was "grasping like a sword", said Luk.
"He said, 'I am robbing the plane now. I want to see the Olympics in Sochi and I need to get off the plane now," recalled Leung. "He was furious. He made me feel like he was trying to endanger the aircraft."
About an hour later, the captain instructed the flight attendants to handcuff Manselius.
A Finnish passenger, a former policeman and an aircrew safety trainer handcuffed Manselius with the help of a cabin crew manager. They also cuffed his legs and fastened his chest with an extra seatbelt. After breakfast was served, Manselius fell asleep.
This happened a week after the other hijacking that also involved Sochi. And my comment on that was apparently more appropriate for this one.
