Flight diverted after spat between passengers
August 26 , 2014
A United Airlines flight in the US had to be diverted and two passengers were taken off it after an ugly spat between them, according to media reports.
A male passenger was reportedly using a lock called the Knee Defender, which jams the reclining mechanism of the seat ahead. The female passenger sitting on the front seat objected to this. Though he was asked by an attendant to take off the lock, the man refused. That’s when the woman threw water over him, reports said.
Eventually, the plane was diverted to Chicago, where the two passengers were asked to get off. The flight continued to its destination, Denver, minus the two squabbling passengers.
