It's happening again, this time on Delta: A Boston-bound passenger tried to open a plane's emergency door on Tuesday night, the Associated Press reports.

It's unclear why a passenger on Flight 1102, en route from Orlando to Boston, wanted to open the door on the flight, Boston Logan spokesman Phil Orlandella told the AP.

Flight crew alerted the airport to the disturbance; the passenger was arrested for interfering with flight crew upon landing.

This is now the third time in a week that there have been disturbances mid-air.

On Sunday, a Delta flight was diverted to Albuquerque after a "potential security threat" was established.
