UAL923 diverted to Boston


#1

Diverted due to a female having lube, a morning cocktail typically made with OJ and Vodka, and love letters to the Middle East.

Yup, sounds like a disturbed passenger to me…

Plane currently sitting at the 15R end of 15R/33L, with bags laid out being gone through with dogs. What a mess, and what a moron.


#3

Who, exactly is the moron ? Woman had none of the items listed, just some kind of panic attack/claustraphobia. All over the news, now.


#4

If she had a panic attack large enough to divert a transatlantic flight, then she has bigger issues and shouldn’t have been on that plane in the first place.


#5

I gave up editing my original post after 5 changes in the story. So even though the main part is wrong, it sounds better than “diverted when woman mistakes 777 for MRI tube”.


#6

United’s Web site flight status indicates “Schedule change due to Customer Service” :laughing:

I think it was a 763. That would be a little tighter than a T7. No biggie. :smiley:


#8

Eh. I didn’t look at the aircraft type. I just took a wild stab at it.


#9

Maybe she saw…wait for it…SNAKES ON THE PLANE!

Sorry, I had to.


#10

Turns out it was a little more than panic attack/claustrophobia:

A woman on a trans-Atlantic flight diverted to Boston for security concerns passed several notes to crew members, urinated on the cabin floor and made comments the crew believed were references to al-Qaida and the Sept. 11 attacks, according to an affidavit filed Thursday.

Seems like a full blown crazy woman to me.


#11

Aren’t they all???

That one was just TOO easy!


#12

Was going to say it sounds like an ex-girlfriend of mine. (Emphasis on the EX - very high emphasis on that prefix!)

They should have followed Andy’s advice:

You should keep your hoe on a leash.
