FBI: Members Of Pro Soccer Team Helped Subdue Man

I wonder if American Airlines found a way to charge the Soccer Team extra for an in-flight work-out.

Oh yeah, that’s right. I went there.

I seriously doubt the female Freepers will be interested in a picture. Usually the people who do this sort of thing are not the you’d want to see naked.

we know it wasn’t Al Gore, it would have taken longer than the flight-time to un-tarp him.

Because then they wouldn't land the plane and it wouldn't be news.

What kind of flight plan had them that far south?

I was on a flight from NC to DFW that got diverted last Tuesday. It was pretty exciting.

There was “weather” in DFW and we got diverted to beautiful, glamorous Longview Texas for about an hour.

Then the fuel truck came out. Hoo boy. I was all in a dither.

They did open the door and let some fresh air in and we were allowed to stand up and move about the miniscule RJ (that's airline talk for “Regional Jet” (a little ER4 Embraer)cabin. They said if we were going to be there for more than an hour, that they would order pizza for us. Who says AA doesn’t have a heart?!

Wait, it gets better, after we took off, they served us free juice or water! Can you stand it!

We were kinda hoping that Madonna, Britney or some other “celebrity” was going to show up and cause a scene but all we saw was some loose cattle roaming the runway in Longview. They mighta been those cows that try and talk you into “eatin’ more chikken” or something like that.

“LAX Flight Diverted After Passenger Strips”
KTLA News

July 18, 2008, 4:01 PM PDT

ARTICLE SNIPPET: “LOS ANGELES — An American Airlines flight from Boston to LAX was diverted to Oklahoma City on Friday after a passenger stripped, put his clothes back on and then tried to open an emergency exit door.

American Flight 725, a Boeing 757 with 151 passengers and seven crew on board, arrived in Oklahoma City at 1:35 p.m. CDT and was back in the air an hour later on the way to Los Angeles, said Tim Smith, a spokesman for American Airlines.”

ARTICLE SNIPPET: “According to Johnson, the passenger emerged from a bathroom without his clothes on.

“He was asked to go back to the bathroom to put his clothes on and he did and went back to his seat and then allegedly attempted to open an aircraft emergency exit door,” Johnson said.

“Members of the Major League Soccer team, the New England Revolution, were on the flight. They were able to subdue him,” he said.”

Hi Don,
Avoid the jet stream is the likely answer. Distance may be greater but flight time less, resulting in less fuel burned.
