— An American Airlines flight bound for Miami from New York's JFK airport stopped briefly in the Triangle Thursday night after a female passenger created a disturbance, an airport spokesman said.

The passenger was removed from the plane and was being questioned by authorities. Her name was not released.

No one was hurt, and the flight was back in the air after the quick stop.

    "THEY" don't need to do a dad gum thing with alcohol. ALCOHOL IS NOT the issue. The "No Fly" list needs to have a "Permanently banned knuckle heads" list.

    They need to cutout alcohol on flights.

    @mergle A jail cell on airplanes? Really? That's what you call common sense? ok then.

    "How about make a holding cell, the size of the bathrooms on the plane and keep them in there. Then have authorities waiting once you touch ground. A hefty penalty and embarrassment should be effective."

    The problem with that is that the airlines wouldn't be able to squeeze a few extra seats into the space it would take up. Money > Common sense.

    "When you get a disruptive passenger, how about put a parachute on them and throw them out a hatch door. This would put a end to this reocurring problem."

    I hope this is a bad as it gets concerning flights between now and the first of the year....or for that matter, as it ever gets.
