Florida flight forced to return after passenger faked illness for better seat






A flight was forced to return to Pensacola in Florida after a passenger faked a medical condition to get a better seat.

When the Miami flight landed, the woman refused to get off, said Mike Wood, a spokesman with the Pensacola Police Department.

Officers were called and all other passengers were evacuated from the aircraft.

The woman was eventually persuaded to leave and was then detained for a psychiatric evaluation.

"When we got on the ground, we figured out she was faking a medical condition in order to get a better seat," Wood said.

The flight took off again about two hours later.
