Passengers causing disturbance on Newark-bound flight removed by police

Two passengers who appeared intoxicated were removed from a Newark-bound United Airlines flight after causing a disturbance.


Flight diverted to Bangor

Two passengers who appeared to be intoxicated caused a disturbance on a Newark-bound United Airlines flight, resulting in the plane making an unplanned stop in Bangor, Maine. The Federal Aviation Administration confirmed that United Flight 883 landed safely at Bangor International Airport at 10 a.m. The flight had departed from Heathrow Airport in London and was in the air for a little over seven hours.

According to the airline, the flight has since taken off again and is en route to New Jersey. However, the two passengers involved in the disturbance have been banned from future flights pending an investigation.

It is still unclear what exactly caused the disturbance and the identities of the passengers have not been disclosed. There were 150 passengers and 10 crew members on board when the flight was diverted.

Passengers banned from future flights

Following the incident, United Airlines has confirmed that both passengers involved in the disturbance are banned from future flights with the airline pending an investigation. The reasons for their ban have not been disclosed and it is unknown if any legal action will be taken.

Passenger safety and comfort are of utmost importance to airlines, and any behavior that disrupts the peace on board an aircraft can result in serious consequences. Airlines have the authority to remove passengers who are deemed to be intoxicated or who are causing a disturbance for the safety and well-being of all passengers and crew members.

Flight resumes journey to New Jersey

After the disturbance was resolved and the two passengers were removed by police, United Flight 883 continued its journey to New Jersey. Passengers on board may have experienced a delay due to the unplanned stop in Bangor, but the airline has not provided any further details about the impact on the overall travel schedule.

It is not uncommon for flights to be diverted or disrupted due to unruly passengers. In such cases, airlines are required to ensure the safety and security of all passengers and crew members involved. The incident is under investigation, and United Airlines will cooperate fully to provide any necessary information or assistance to authorities.
