Unruly flyer's in-flight pull-ups force flight to divert to Kansas City

A cross-country American Airlines flight diverted to Kansas City on Monday evening because of an unruly flyer who reportedly became belligerent after doing pull-ups from the overhead storage bins.


American Flight 2763 departed from Phoenix around 6:30 p.m. ET and was headed to Boston when it diverted to Kansas City because of the manís alleged shenanigans, according to CBS Boston (WBZ TV).


Fellow passengers said the man appeared to be intoxicated when he started doing pull-ups from an overhead bin before becoming belligerent.


The flight attendant probably asked him three or four times to sit down and he refused to sit down and then he really got verbally abusive with her, starting calling her names,Ē David Markoski said to WBZ.


American confirmed to USA TODAY that an incident had taken place on the aircraft, saying the flight diverted to Kansas City about 90 minutes after takeoff, according to spokesman Ross Feinstein. He said the passenger was removed by law enforcement officers and that the flight continued on to Boston, arriving about 90 minutes behind schedule.


The FBI has taken the lead on the investigation into manís behavior, though the agency has not filed charges, according to WBZ-TV.

There's a captain that uses hand holds and footrests to perform some awkward P-90x like work out routine, then asks the FO if they want to feel his core (I declined).
This is not to be confused with gym socks drying on air vents guy, train conductor guy, or gulfstream owner/super model wife guy.

I laughed out loud actually have flown with every one of CLTís finest listed here, but space guy is my favorite.

He tell you how:
1. Weíve been time traveling for decades and traveling faster than speed of light
2. About the human colonies warring with aliens on Mars
3. Eisenhowerís granddaughter

My favorite response when I asked him how he knew all this... ďIím a commuter and spend a lot of time I. The Sterling so I do a lot of online researchĒ

Wait... I thought that was the guy that claims the alien mothership is hiding in the storm cell.

What about the African gold mine Captain? Or the one that briefs every f/a how to land the airplane (it's hilarious to watch them exit the cockpit with their head spinning!)?

We have true heroes!

I will openly admit I am a Crossfiter, and I absolutely die laughing every time I watch the Broscience Crossfit video. Look up How to be a Crossfiter....the video is so spot on.

I take FedEx several times a year which includes connecting through their "Master Base" MEM. They operation is very impressive, but anyway listening to the pilots gossip they too have their share of "characters"


The grass is always greener on the other side.

Why do people complain about the alien guy - that sounds like a great way to kill the boredom! Knowledge is power! And how else are we supposed to fight the greys and reptilians?!?

Flew with a LAX 737 CA who subscribed to that, among other things.

So is the moon flat, too?

I had a kid ask me last year whether I got tired pushing the nose down on a transcon. Otherwise we'd be in space!

So obviously the earth is flat!

He probably doesnít stay in the Sterling enough to have enough time to do the proper research. Heíll find out when he lands that we have had a base there since the 50ís and need to pick sides between warring clans quickly.
