Extraordinary. Another flight is diverted after two passengers were involved in an altercation over seat recline.
An American Airlines flight from Miami to Paris diverted and landed in Boston on Wednesday after air marshals on board broke cover and restrained a 61-year-old man fighting with the passenger in front of him who was trying to recline the seat.
One of the parties involved made a BIG mistake:
Edmund Alexandre, of Paris, was arrested and charged with interfering with a flight crew after allegedly grabbing a crew member's arm.
No matter how infuriated/inebriated you are, you NEVER touch flight crew under ANY circumstances. This guy better have a good lawyer and deep pockets. And all because of a reclining seat. Gimme a break.
