Plane returns to Seattle with chanting passenger

SEATTLE (AP) — Officials say a man who was loudly chanting on an Alaska Airlines flight from Seattle to Hawaii made the other passengers uncomfortable and prompted the crew to return and drop him off with law enforcement at Sea-Tac Airport. Airlines spokeswoman Nancy Trott says the captain made the right decision for safety Wednesday night. Trott says the man was removed without incident about 9:30 p.m. Flight 877 resumed with 178 passengers and landed at 1:16 a.m. local time Thursday at Kona. Trott didn't know what the man was chanting or why. She says the crew tried to reason with him without success.
