I've been on those same red-eye flights two dozen or more times. That had to have been a nightmare. Sounds like a direct to DVD horror film. Trapped for five hours with a man found liable in civil court for two murders, giving movie, music and beer reviews. And not being able to sleep despite taking an Ambien.
