The amazing thing is this isn't the first time this has happened with United Express.....They have done it before back in 2010 and were sued for it:

You think after doing it before and being sued for it they wouldn't do it again. Major security issue locking someone into a plane like that, good thing he didn't feel like taking it for a spin.

Someone told him to keep it quiet and slipped him a bag filled with toiletries, they also tried to make him feel like he was at fault. I belive in the end he got a 250 dollar voucher.

I would have went to the cockpit and started it up and taken if for a little flight...... back to a small airport in south america then sold it to some shady airline.... What possession is 9/10th of the law...

I think the guy deserves more than a $250 voucher, after all, they get the money back that way.

Tegucigalpa, Honduras - Earlier today an out of service ExpressJet airliner was stolen and flown to Toncontin International Airport in Honduras. The aircraft was met by members of the FBI and the US Homeland Security, along with local law enforcement, when ExpressJet reported the aircraft missing hours earlier. The lone passenger aboard the aircraft claimed he "totally planned to bring it back" and that it was "their fault for locking me in here anyway."

 

The passenger was booked on act of terrorism charges and faces life imprisonment. In response to the incident and claims of terrorism, the FBI's Aviation Counter-Terrorism Task Force made an official statement today, stating "#####? ROFL!"
