Being upset with your work assignment is one thing, but federal authorities say a flight attendant took it to a whole new level and endangered the passengers and crew of a commercial airliner in expressing his displeasure.
Federal authorities have arrested the flight attendant, identified as 19-year-old Eder Rojas, who they said started a fire in an in-flight bathroom because he was angry over his assigned route. He's charged with setting fire aboard a civil aircraft, which carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.
Authorities said the Compass Airlines flight flying from Minneapolis to Regina, Saskatchewan, with 72 passengers and four crew members on board landed safely in Fargo, N.D., on May 7 after smoke filled the back of the airplane.
No one was injured, according to the reports.
Rojas is being held without bail.
