Passenger dispute diverts flight to JIA Published: September 2, 2014

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A Delta Airlines flight from LaGuardia to Palm Beach International Airport was diverted to Jacksonville when a passenger got into a dispute over a reclining seat.

Delta Flight 2370 departed at about 7 p.m. Monday, en route to West Palm Beach. According to Delta Airlines, the flight was diverted "due to safety reasons in regard to a passenger issue."

The onboard witness, Aaron Klipin, told a reporter that she was seated next to a woman who attempted to recline her seat when an argument began with a woman passenger behind her -- later identified as Amy Fine -- who had her head down on the tray table trying to sleep.
