Military Jet Escorts DC-Bound Plane As Passenger Prays In An Aisle

DENVER (November 9, 2012)--A United Airlines plane on a flight from Denver landed safely in Washington, D.C., after its crew reported an emergency because a passenger began praying in an aisle.

Military jets escorted the plane after the crew declared the emergency.

The plane landed Thursday at Dulles International Airport.

Denver TV station KUSA reported that the crew made the decision because a male passenger started praying in the middle of an aisle.

United spokeswoman Megan McCarthy says a passenger wasn't following flight attendant instructions for landing.
