Uskanli provided police a home address in the affluent Santa Monica suburb of California. A Linkedin page for someone with his name says he attended film school in London until this year.

Thanks for adding that pic. This story stinks. Anyone who's been in an airport knows where the food court is. I'm not buying that excuse/reasoning.
The airport incident was 3 hours before his flight. The guy is an actor. Something more was going on, IMO.
The lack of MSM coverage and no cell phone videos of the incident. Unheard of in today's world. The guy runs toward the front of the plane with his head covered. He was hiding his face from being filmed. I don't know what his real motives were but apparently we should all just move along folks, nothing to see here .
Passengers told the FBI that Uskanli acted strangely on the flight, including talking about being a famous actor and pounding on walls after someone walked into a restroom he had left unlocked.
At one point, he got up from his seat, wrapped a blanket around his head, picked up his laptop and started walking to the front of the plane. A flight attendant used a drink cart to block him. Uskanli put the laptop on the drink cart, the complaint said, which scared flight attendants because they are aware “that laptop computers potentially pose a new threat to airplane security because they may contain explosives that are undetected by airport screening measures.”
The captain initiated bomb threat procedures, and flight attendants barricaded the laptop with crew bags. An off-duty law enforcement officer sat with Uskanli for the remainder of the flight, the complaint said. No explosives were found after the plane landed.
FBI agents then interviewed Uskanli. “When I asked him if he ever had terroristic thoughts, he responded, ‘We all have those ideas,’” an agent wrote in an affidavit. The agent asked again later about terroristic thoughts. In response, Uskanli made a gun shape with his fingers and pretended to shoot her, she wrote.
“He then did a gesture simulating a chopping motion toward my neck,” the agent wrote. He then told another agent, “I’ll kill her, get out the following day and shoot myself,” according to the court documents.
