An American Airlines flight was diverted off its scheduled course after a passenger berated a flight attendant and did pull-ups on the overhead compartment.
American Airlines Flight 2763 left Phoenix on 3:45 p.m. local time on Monday, October 1, en route to Boston. Roughly two hours into the flight, the plane was diverted to Kansas City due to the actions of an unruly passenger who appeared to be intoxicated.
According to CBS 4 Boston, passengers said a man boarded the plane with a woman and two dogs and seemed to be under the influence of alcohol, as he was stumbling. Passengers told CBS he eventually started to hang onto the overhead baggage compartments, doing pull-ups, and later in the flight became belligerent toward a flight attendant when she asked him multiple times to sit down.
When asked by Business Insider to comment on the matter, an American Airlines spokesperson said the flight was, "Diverted due to an unruly passenger. The passenger was removed by law-enforcement and flight re-departed for Boston."
American Airlines suggested contacting the Federal Bureau of Investigation for more details. Business Insider reached out to the Kansas City Branch of the FBI, but has not heard back for comment.
