PTI Bound Flight Diverted to PHL
Philadelphia, PA -- An unruly passenger forced a flight bound for Greensboro to make an unscheduled stop at Philadelphia International Airport Tuesday.
Authorities say the Delta Air Lines flight, which originated from LaGuardia Airport in New York, was diverted to Philadelphia after a passenger became upset over service on the plane.
According to KYW-TV a flight attendant felt threated when a passanger demanded apple juice. Sources say he used profanity and threw the drink in an angry outburst.
A spokeswoman for the FBI in Philadelphia says the incident was a "minor disturbance." She says she doesn't anticipate any arrests being made.
The more than 48 passengers on the plane have to stay overnight in Philadelphia. Delta is still working to find them flights.
