ANOTHER Plane Diverted Because Of A Seat Fight

The fight for airplane seat supremacy continues this week with a story from Florida about a plane that was forced to land after an unruly passenger made a fuss about a woman who was trying to recline her seat.

WPTV spoke with a passenger who said he was sitting next to the aforementioned seat recliner during the Monday night flight.

"This woman who was sitting next to me knitting actually tried reclining her seat back and the woman behind her started screaming and swearing and the flight attendant came over and that just exacerbated what was going on, and then she demanded that the flight land," Aaron Klipin said.

The flight was supposed to go from New York's LaGuardia Airport to Palm Beach International Airport but it had to be diverted to Jacksonville.

The Associated Press reports that the unruly passenger, identified as 32-year-old Amy Fine of Boca Raton, told authorities she was just emotional over the death of her two dogs.

No charges are expected to be filed against Fine.

This is the third flight to be diverted due to a seat fight on an airplane in the last few days.
