A woman demanding a larger seat on an American Airlines flight is in custody after faking a medical condition that prompted the pilot to head back to a Florida airport.
“Once airborne, she told them she wanted a bigger seat. The pilot declared an emergency… once they got on the ground, she made it clear that she was faking the medical condition to get a bigger seat,” said Mike Wood, Pensacola Police Department public information officer.
Flight crews summoned authorities once the Miami-bound flight arrived back to Pensacola, where it originally took off from, early Friday morning.
