A group of passengers is suing JetBlue, saying they feared for their lives when a pilot had to be physically restrained during their flight in March.
In a lawsuit filed in State Supreme Court in Queens, the ten passengers claimed Jet Blue was "grossly negligent" when it allowed pilot Clayton Osbon to fly.
The New York-to-Las Vegas flight was forced to make an emergency landing in Amarillo, Texas on March 27 after Osbon went on a wild rant in the plane's cabin.
He was restrained by passengers and crew.
Osbon faces a hearing in Texas on Friday that will determine whether he's competent to stand trial.
He faces federal charges of interfering with a flight crew.
