A Yemeni man who pounded on the cockpit door of a US-bound American Airlines flight while yelling “Alahu Akbar” (“God is Great”) is being held without bail in San Francisco.  But his family claims the man is neither religious nor political.  They said it was only his third time on a plane and he might have mistaken the cockpit for the bathroom and been desperate to get in. 

- Authorities say they have two problems with the explanation:  #1 and #2. 

- Usually the only people who mention “God” in an airplane bathroom are members of the “Mile High Club”. 

- Didn’t he notice that there was no “Occupado” sign on the cockpit door?
