 CHANTILLY, Va. (AP) - JetBlue Airways says a flight from Boston
to the Dominican Republic had to land in the Washington, D.C., area
because of an unruly passenger.
     
The company says in a statement that Flight 691 was diverted to
Washington-Dulles International Airport on Friday afternoon because
of what it described as an unruly customer.
     
The Transportation Safety Administration and local law
enforcement were notified and took the passenger into custody.
    
 No one was hurt and the flight was expected to continue to Santo
Domingo just before 2 p.m.
     
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority
says he did not know why the flight had been diverted.
