An American Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing Thursday after a passenger refused to stop singing Whitney Houston's hit song, "I Will Always Love You.”
CBS-affiliated WBTV said the flight left Los Angeles International Airport at 3:30 p.m. and was meant to fly non-stop to John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.
But the New York-bound flight was diverted to Kansas City International Airport at 6:06 p.m. after a woman started belting out Whitney Houston songs, Wave 105 states.
"The woman was being disruptive and was removed from the plane," said Joe McBride, spokesman for the Kansas City International Airport to KCTV on Friday.
"There was a federal air marshal on the aircraft, who subdued the woman and put her in cuffs and removed her from the plane," he said
In the brief video posted by a passenger on YouTube, a passenger wearing pink pants can be seen with police walking down the center aisle toward the back of the plane singing, "I will always love you!"
The woman, who was not identified, was questioned and released. She was not charged in the incident. She claimed she was diabetic, McBride said.
The plane resumed its trip to New York at about 7:11 p.m., but not with its star singer.
McBride said the airline refused to allow the woman back on the plane. As a result, she had to find her own way to her destination, KCTV reported.
