Flight Diverted Over Passenger Revolt
Dispute over free upgrade
A JetBlue flight carrying 137 people from New York to San Diego was diverted to Denver on Thursday night after one unruly woman refused to suffer the indignity of seeing someone else get a free upgrade. Another passenger who videotaped the incident on her cell phone says that the woman became enraged when one passenger was allowed to move to a better seat without paying the premium price. The woman was removed from the plane in Denver without incident. In the video, passengers can be seen cheering her departure. JetBlue has decided to treat the incident as a customer service issue and will not be filing charges against the woman.
