A United Airlines flight from Newark to Denver had to divert to Chicago on Sunday when two passengers got into a bit of a brawl over the ability to recline in the economy class of the plane.
A guy used a couple of devices called the Knee Defenders, which prevented the woman in the seat in front of him from reclining her seat. The woman asked that he let her recline. He refused.
The flight attendant told the man that Knee Defenders were not allowed on United flights. The man refused to remove them.
Tempers flared, water was thrown, and the flight had to make an emergency landing in the Windy City.
No charges were filed – the authorities say the whole thing was a customer service issue. You can get the rest of the customers had issues with the two passengers who got them diverted.
