Icelandair says it had to restrain a passenger on a flight from Reykjavik to New York City because he was hitting people, screaming profanities and spitting.
The incident, which occured on Thursday, received media attention after a photograph began circulating on the internet purporting to show the passenger tied to his seat with tape and plastic restraints.
The man who posted the picture to the website Tumblr, Andy Ellwood, said it was taken by a friend on the flight.
Icelandair spokesman Gudjon Arngrimsson said the passenger was bound after his behaviour became "unruly and threatening".
"To ensure the safety of those who were on board he was restrained by the crew and passengers and then was monitored for the duration of the flight for his own safety," he said
