Singing Whitney Houston Fan Forces Emergency Landing of L.A.-N.Y. Flight (Report)

Woman belts out "I Will Always Love You" as she's escorted from airplane

In this post-9/11 world, there are any number of restrictions that air travelers have to contend with. But a ban on singing Whitney Houston?

Charlotte, N.C.. television station WBTV reports that an American Airlines flight from Los Angeles to New York was forced to make an emergency stop in Kansas City, Mo., on Thursday, in order to eject a woman who was disrupting the flight, in part by singing Houston's "I Will Always Love You." 

According to the blog "Crazy Days and Nights," the woman sang the song incessantly throughout the flight, until it made its emergency landing.

According to WBTV, an air marshal aboard the JFK-bound flight placed the woman in handcuffs and removed her from the plane after it made its emergency landing.

A spokesman for Kansas City International Airport told TheWrap on Monday that the emergency landing took place a little after 6 p.m. on Thursday, and that the passenger was "being disruptive and was non compliant" with the air marshal's orders.

The passenger also reportedly stated that her behavior was in relation to a medical condition.

Houston died in February 2012 at age 48.

A video taken by a passenger on the plane shows the woman belting out the title line as she's escorted from the plane.

An American Airlines spokeswoman directed TheWrap to the Kansas City Police Department. TheWrap has reached out to the KCPD, and is attempting to confirm details of the incident.

The woman was released without charges filed after being interviewed, but was not allowed to reboard by the airline, and took a cab from the airport, the airport spokesman said.

Apparently, her singing wasn't bad enough to be considered criminal.
