United flight to TLV turns back due to unruly passengers

The United Airlines red-eye from Newark to Tel Aviv was forced to turn back, as the disruptive passengers caused a racket. They were arrested upon landing. The airline says they "have made arrangements for customers to complete their journeys"

United Airlines flight 90, taking off from Newark Airport (EWR) just before midnight, Jan 20, and expected to land today at Ben Gurion Airport (TLV) around 4 PM, was forced to turn back and land at EWR due to the unruly behavior of two Israeli passengers.

According to some media reports, the Israeli passengers clashed with the cabin crew and caused a racket after sitting in business class and allegedly refusing to prove they had business class tickets.

The plane had to turn back and land at EWR, where “Law enforcement officials met the aircraft upon landing,” according to the statement made by UA spokesperson. The flight was subsequently canceled.

United Airlines further added, “Our team at Newark have provided our customers with meal vouchers and hotel accommodation and have made arrangements for customers to complete their journeys.”
