Miami-London Flight Turns Around Over the Atlantic Ocean After Mask Dispute

An American Airlines flight en route to London from Miami was forced to turn around about an hour into the trip due to a passenger “refusing to comply with the federal mask requirement,” an airline spokesperson said Thursday.

State of play: The flight, which carried 129 passengers and 14 crew members, was about 500 miles into its over 4,000-mile journey when it was diverted back to the Miami International Airport.

  • The disruptive passenger has been placed on American Airlines’ internal refuse list pending further investigation.
  • No customers or crew members were injured.
