Flight Makes Emergency Landing After Woman Won't Stop Singing

Three hours into a an almost six hour flight from Los Angeles to New York, an American Airlines pilot finally made an emergency landing. The reason? Three hours of a woman singing without a break, the song I Will Always Love You by Whitney Houston. Three hours of her singing it and three hours of passengers trying to get her to stop. Flight attendants trying to get her to stop. A pilot and federal air marshal trying to get her to stop. All without success. So, after what one passenger estimated was the 60th time through the song, the pilot landed the plane in Kansas City so police could escort the woman off who kept singing the entire time. So, what happened to the woman? No charges were filed and she was free to get on the next flight.

Getting ready for an audition maybe?

eris hilton said...

And soon she'll have a reality show wherein she harasses the passengers on all kinds of public transportation with a new song each week. America votes on what she sings until police intervene!

babo said...

You must a solid b***ch to inflict this on people.

eris hilton said...

It'll be "Glee" meets "Intervention"!

Lola said...

I'm sure this wasn't even remotely funny to the people on the plane, but as an innocent bystander, it's pretty damn funny.

And Iiiiiiiiiiii will always love yooooooooou.

Robert said...

There should have been some way they could have locked the stupid bi*ch up.

Cathy said...

I realize the singing was an inconvenience, but was it really MORE of an inconvenience than making an unscheduled landing?

It'll be "Glee" meets "Intervention"!

BWAHAHAHHA Eris!

Well I guess it could have been worse, it could have been Henry the 8th I am...

GladysKravitz said...

If I sang just one verse--or even one stanza-- of any song, let alone THAT song, they would have to make an emergency landing because the pilots' eardrums would have burst. Completely unable to hit a note correctly. I hope those passengers were lucky enough to get someone who could at least sing...

Patty said...

I hate inconsiderate people. This one...sinigng for 3 hours after being asked to stop? What a heffa.

Snapdragon said...

I have GOT to think it's some kind of condition that compelled her to do this, exacerbated by the air pressure etc. There is no reasonable explanation otherwise (well, aside from being a complete, as you say, betch).

Did she sing on the next flight, I wonder?

SusanB said...

There has to be SOME federal law she broke by forcing a plane to make an unscheduled landing because of what she was doing.

phoenix said...

I'd love to know why she did it.

Not one bitch had a ball gag in their carry on???????

Topper Madison said...

This is hilarious. It reminds me of Paul Poundstone's comedy bit about following someone around all day singing "How do you Solve a Problem like Maria" from the Sound of Music. Maybe it was her?

Nutty_Flavor said...

This reminds me of a great story I read years ago, about a guy who had a car accident - no worries, he was not seriously hurt - but he was trapped in his car for 4 or 5 hours while they were trying to get him out, and a cassette tape of "Wake Me Up Before You GoGo" was stuck on repeat. Over and over and over again. When they finally got him out, the first thing he said was "I never want to hear that song again!"

SingBlue said...

She blamed it on her diabetes. You know, that common condition that causes people to belt out old 90s covers.

Apparently after being kicked off the plane, she "had to make her own way for her onward journey".

One wonders what she subjected them to for the later flight? My money is on "So Emotional".

Hazeldazel said...

they made an emergency landing because if you are doing this for 3 hours straight and do not stop even when an air marshal with a gun tells you to... then you are high, mentally ill, having an extreme anxiety attack, etc.

kelgela2 said...

Would have been awesome if they made her pay for her new ticket too.

Jules_345 said...

Lol @nutty...I can imagine that would be horrific! And I like that song, once or twice.

Empress of Socks said...

Is it not against the law to willfully disobey the Air Marshal? I feel like she should be sued by the airline for the delay, extra fuel, missed connections, etc simply because people need to get the message of "hey, stop being an annoying twat just because you think it's fun".

J Sara said...

I would have locked he in a bathroom. Want to sing? There you go. Seems silly to land a plane over that. Annoying....

J Sara said...

Locked her not he! Ugh it's monday

eris hilton said...

If diabetes caused you to uncontrollably burst into song my family reunions would be WAY more entertaining.

Anna Nonymous said...

Sounds kind of funny, I would have laughed and joined in, and tried to get everyone to join in, can you imagine a plane full of people warbling I will always love yuuuuuuuhoooewwwwoooOOOoooOOOoooo yuuuuuHuuuuuuuuOOOOooooOOooOO
youuuu hoooo oooooo.... and then land the plane. Three hours is too much, she sounds so unstable that she is unable to care for herself and isn't safe to be walking around unsupervised much less on a plane. Perhaps people that are truly mentally unable to care for themselves shouldn't be allowed on airplanes unaccompanied.

KLM said...

LOL @eris hilton...

So that's what Demi Moore was doing this weekend. Demi, move on already.

Julie said...

hahaha, I find this hilarious!

Jason Blue Eyes said...

I spent 20 years trying to forget that song.

auntliddy said...

Mb shes like tourettes, and literally cldnt stop.

Del Riser said...

This would be very annoying, we sat across the aisle from a woman who was having panic attacks. From Seattle to Tampa we would get fifteen minute breaks before she started moaning then keening up into a high pitched scream that her husband tried to muffle. The flight attendants read him the riot act for forgetting her medicine. I think everyone on the plane was a wreck by the time we landed.

Solitary Angel said...

They should've put that crazy bitch in the cargo hold...let her serenade the luggage.

Onyx Loathes Hydrangeas said...

Omg there's video... Shes not exactly Whitney

shopgirl said...

I might have been charged with something serious if she'd been on my flight. I HATE that song. When Whitney died and it was all over the news I couldn't snatch the remote fast enough. And there's no mute button on a plane.

Silly Girl said...

Aside from annoying, who knows this wasn't a diversionary tactic for something more sinister? THAT is why they made an emergency landing. It wasn't normal behavior and she didn't stop even when the marshall's got involved. Perfectly in their right to make an emergency landing. I'm glad they did! Can you imagine being on that flight?!

nudibelle said...

That's crazy Lmfaooooo
my nerves would have been shot

feraltart said...

3 hours, I'm surprised she wasn't attacked by somebody.

Audrey said...

I'm just glad to hear I'm not the only one that hates that song. :)

MadLyb said...

Thank you, Ronnie, for making the huge push to deteriorate mental health services that would help people like this. Yes, I blame this asshat.

Rose said...

I really feel for the people sitting right next to her. And yes they would have stopped because she would even obey the marshall.

Fish said...

There should be some kind of fine for making a plane do an unscheduled stop b/c you're a dick. Go directly to jail until you pay the fine. That would stop it pretty quick...well, I can dream can't I?

Zeeky_Boogy_Doog said...

Good thing she didn't choose a Mariah Carey number... she might have shattered the plastic windows!

SingBlue said...

"We have a Houston Problem!"

Not normally a fan of the Sun in the UK, but that headline killed me!

TSA said...

She definitely needed a psychiatric evaluation at least. I can't believe they just cut her loose, diabetic reaction my foot. Should have been fined, too.

Alita said...

Hehe, well played @SingBlue

Alita said...

Lol @eris hilton .. you've got an impressive point there! If diabetes could select a better sound track, I'd think that the entire western world would be way more entertaining!
