Delta flight diverted to Boston due to ‘unruly’ passenger

According to Delta Air Lines, a flight between Detroit and Amsterdam landed in Boston, where an unruly passenger was removed from the plane

BOSTON– A Delta Air Lines flight between Detroit and Amsterdam was diverted to Boston because of a recalcitrant passenger on board, the airline says.

Delta Flight 134 was diverted to Boston Logan International Airport just before 9 p.m. Friday, where the plane was met by law enforcement and the passenger was removed from the plane.

“We have zero tolerance for unruly behavior on our aircraft and apologize to our valued customers and crew for this unfortunate delay in their travels,” the airline said in a statement.

Delta did not describe the disruption caused by the passenger, but said such diversion is standard procedure under similar circumstances.

The Port Authority of Massachusetts, which operates the airport, referred questions about the incident to state police, who said Sunday they had no information on the case.

The flight, an Airbus A330-300, carrying 282 passengers and crew, continued its journey to Amsterdam and arrived more than three hours late.


This story corrects the airline name to Delta Air Lines.
