Here’s a crazy story. Wednesday’s British Airways flight from London Gatwick to Kingston, Jamaica, BA2263, had to divert to an airport in the Azores in order to offload a disruptive passenger who refused to return to his economy seat. The Boeing 777 landed at Lajes Air Base in the Azores, which is both a military base as well as a commercial airport.
Here’s what transpired, per 9News:
“The airline said the man refused to return to his economy seat after sitting in business class without permission.
Cabin crew and one of the pilots spoke to him but were unable to convince him to move, British Airways said.”
