    Two dozen passengers have joined a lawsuit in New York against JetBlue Airways stemming from a pilot's rant during a Las Vegas-bound flight.

    They're now among 34 passengers who claim they feared for their lives when a pilot had to be restrained in the cabin while ranting wildly during the flight. The March flight was diverted and safely landed in Amarillo, Texas.

    An amended lawsuit was filed Thursday in federal court in Brooklyn.
