I was told it was due to an unruly passenger, but don't have details beyond that. Hoping someone got a pic (of the plane, not the passenger)(ok, maybe the passenger too).

The article doesn't say much, but has a photo of the plane on the ground, and video of it dumping fuel before landing. The plane was on the ground for about 2h45m.

Are passengers becoming more unruly? Or are we just hearing about it more often? :roll:
Remind me to send a thank you note to Mr. Boeing.

Shame I wasn't outside last night. I have a good view of the SLC approach from my backyard love to spot irregular visitors and unusual events like this.

Dumping fuel for an unruly pax? Must have been real bad

Delta is a partner... so maybe using their hub for logistics?

Is this the first time AZ has been to SLC?
