They’re not giving many specifics or the woman’s name yet, but the Tampa Bay Times reports that pilots had to turn a plane around and go back to the airport Friday morning. They say a woman faked some kind of medical condition on an American Airlines flight headed to Miami. Why? They say she wanted a bigger seat. Pensacola police say they had to evacuate the plane when they got back to the airport because the woman wouldn’t get off the plane. That’s when the authorities got on the plane and got her out of that seat that was too small. She was Baker Acted and passengers were put back on the plane and sent on their way to Miami.
