JACKSONVILLE, Florida — A Delta Air Lines flight from New York to West Palm Beach, Florida, was diverted to Jacksonville because of a dispute between passengers over a reclining seat.

Jacksonville station News 4 Jax (http://bit.ly/1qX1NjG ) reports that Delta says the flight was diverted Monday night.

Passenger Aaron Klipin told the station a woman sitting next to him got into an argument with a passenger behind her. The woman was trying to recline her seat while the other passenger was trying to sleep on the tray table.

Klipin says the woman who was trying to sleep started screaming. A flight attendant came over and the woman who was screaming demanded that the flight be diverted.

The plane landed in Jacksonville and continued on to West Palm Beach. Delta says local law enforcement removed the unruly woman from the plane.

It's at least the third example in recent days of a dispute between passengers over reclining seats on airplanes.
