JACKSONVILLE, Florida (AP) - Officials say a Delta Air Lines flight from New York to West Palm Beach was diverted because of a passenger dispute over a reclining seat.
The flight was diverted to Jacksonville on Monday night. According to a report by the Jacksonville Airport Authority, 32-year-old Amy Fine of Boca Raton was resting her head on her tray table when the passenger ahead of her reclined the seat. The seat hit Fine's head, and witnesses say the two passengers began arguing. Flight attendants called Fine combative.
Pilots diverted a flight to Jacksonville because they say a woman became "unruly". Flight attendants say she was resting her head on a tray table when the person in front of her reclined their seat and hit her in the head.
According to the report, Fine told authorities she wasn't combative but emotional over the death of her two dogs.
The report says Fine wasn't arrested and was allowed to go home in a rental car. The flight continued to West Palm Beach.
Fine didn't return a message on her cellphone seeking comment Tuesday.
