The company said in a statement that the flight was preparing to take off from McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas to Portland when the pilot noticed something strange, a person coming towards the plane.
The pilot was quick to notify the interview tower of the western incident, and the authorities could not arrest the man until he got on the wing of the plane.
The man had jumped off the fence surrounding the airport and continued on his way to one plane.
