United Airlines flight to Tel Aviv returns to New York as passenger sits in crew seat
A United Airlines flight from New York to Tel Aviv turned back round to the US three hours into its journey after a "disruptive" passenger sat in a crew seat while waiting to use the bathroom on Sunday (23 April).
The unruly passenger got into a shouting match with a flight attendant, according to reports.
United Airlines confirmed that flight 90 returned to Newark shortly after takeoff "due to a disruptive passenger."
"Law enforcement met the aircraft and removed the passenger. A new flight was scheduled to depart Sunday evening,” the airline said.
