Pilot Makes Unscheduled Landing Because Woman Was Singing On Board

American Airlines Flights Diverts To Kansas City To Take Her Off The Plane

Los Angeles to New York is a long flight no matter what, but apparently a recent American Airlines flight on that route Friday was being made to seem even longer because a woman would not stop singing Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" and other songs in the passenger cabin.

So, the pilot made the rare move of making an unscheduled stop in Kansas City, MO, and had the woman removed from the plane, according to multiple media sources including People Magazine and philly.com. Many of those sources characterize the landing as an "emergency landing," but the only emergency seemed to be the lack of talent on the part of the woman doing the singing.

A video posted by a passenger shows federal air marshals escorting the woman off the plane in handcuffs, still belting out the Dolly Parton song made into an anthem by Whitney Houston. Kansas City Airport spokesman Joe McBride said that the woman was removed from the plane for "being disruptive" and "interfering with a flight crew."

The flight continued on to JKF International in New  York, minus the in-flight "entertainment."
