Two Canadian women are facing charges after authorities say they drank their duty-free alcohol in a plane's bathroom, triggered the fire alarm with a cigarette and got into a fight with each other, forcing a Sunwing flight bound for Cuba to return to Toronto under a military escort.

I hope they get the book thrown at them.


Also from the same article, an AA MIA-CDG flight was diverted to BOS due to a disruptive pax who was angry that the woman in front reclined.

Meanwhile another in-flight outburst caused by a reclined seat caused a US flight to be diverted.The incident involving an American Airlines flight to be diverted to Boston, is at least the second such incident in the US this week, authorities say.
Passenger Edmund Alexandre became upset after a woman reclined the seat in front of him on the Miami-to-[COLOR=#009900 !important]Paris flight, the Suffolk County district attorney's office said.[/COLOR]
Alexandre, who's from Paris, continued to be disruptive when a flight crew member attempted to calm him, following the crewman down the aisle and grabbing his arm, authorities said.
Two undercover federal air marshals on the flight then subdued Alexandre and handcuffed him, the US attorney's office said.
Massachusetts state police arrested Alexandre when the diverted plane landed around 10 pm.
