HOUSTON (February 16, 2014) An American flight that left Chicago and made an unplanned stop in Canada to remove an unruly passenger from the plane has landed in London, airline spokesman Kent Powell said.
The flight landed early Sunday at London's Heathrow Airport, its original destination.
There were 187 passengers aboard the Boeing 777.
Powell told The Associated Press the 35-year-old man refused to follow the crew's instructions, but had no further details on what transpired aboard Flight 86 that left Chicago on Saturday.
The man was transferred to authorities in Gander, Newfoundland.
Powell says refusing to follow instructions on a flight, even something as simple as remaining seated, is a criminal offense.
