They Had a Problem

by Julia Griffin

“United flight to Amsterdam reportedly diverted to Chicago over meal choice
An unruly passenger was allegedly upset about the menu and raised a stink after plane
took off from Houston”
The Guardian

Just off the ground, the pilot was alerted:
“Unruly type, allegedly upset!”
The plane was then reportedly diverted.
(The other passengers were not, I’d bet.)
