JetBlue flight diverted over unruly passenger

JetBlue flight to San Diego diverted to Denver over passenger's argument about seats

Associated Press

DENVER (AP) -- JetBlue Airways Corp. says a flight from New York to San Diego was diverted to Denver because of an unruly passenger.

JetBlue says Flight 185 landed around 7:15 p.m. Thursday in Denver, where the woman was met by law-enforcement officers. The airline says 137 passengers were on board, and they were back on their way several hours later.

Passengers tell KMGH-TV (http://tinyurl.com/avfy7bx ) the woman was seated in the premium section when another passenger was moved to the same row because his TV monitor didn't work.

Passengers say the woman became angry that the man was moved to her premium section without paying extra and she got into an argument with the flight crew. A federal air marshal intervened and the flight was diverted.

Denver police say they aren't pursuing charges.
