Not on avherald yet. Apparently, a man started issuing threats two hours into the flight. A couple who happened to be Austrian police in their day jobs contacted the crew discreetly and then restrained the man with cable ties and guarded him for the remainer of the flight.

Great job and I suggest the airline generate some positive free publicity by at the very least upgrading them on their way home.

We heard them as we came off the Atlantic being asked by the Canadian Military whether they wanted military assistance but they seemed calm and to have it all under control. Not what you need in the middle of the pondů

Press release from the Austrian ministery of the interior says they were flying to Vancouver. Maybe the couple were headed for Vancouver via Toronto, but that should have been reflected in the wording.

confirms it was FRA-YYZ, but they waffle about an 11 h flight when the scheduled flight time is 8h40. 11 h is still high even for FRA-YVR (10h10).

Still not on Avherald, so it probably didn't happen anyway
