Feigning illness the hijacker started toward the forward restroom and brandishing a pistol gained access to the cockpit. He demanded 10 million dollars, flight to Madrid, Spain and and then to Switzerland. After hours of negotiation at Madrid he dropped his other demands, released the passengers and agreed to return to Lisbon. He was taken into custody in Lisbon.
