The airline has apologised, and told passengers not to come to the airport.
BA chief executive Alex Cruz said: “We believe the root cause was a power supply issue.”
An airline passenger was arrested Thursday after he opened the plane’s galley door as it was taxiing and jumped onto the tarmac at a North Carolina airport, authorities said.
Tun Lon Sein was seated on American Airlines Flight 5242 just before takeoff, when he suddenly stood from his seat and attempted to open the aircraft’s main door before he was halted by a flight attendant, whom he then tried to bite, federal air marshals said in a criminal complaint, according to CNN.
Officers arrested the suspect as he ran into the neighborhood near Providence Portland Medical Center in Northeast Portland, Simpson said. Police are still working to identify the suspect and people stabbed.
