Fyatu bin hamnazo! Abiria wakoboana na kusababisha ndege itue kwa dharura

An entire plane was diverted on Sunday after a fight broke out over a passenger's right to recline her seat.

"The spat began on United Airlines flight 1462 because one passenger was using the Knee Defender, a $21.95 lock that attaches to a tray table and jams the reclining mechanism of the seat in front.

"The male passenger, seated in a middle seat of row 12, used the device to stop the woman in front of him reclining while he was on his laptop, according to a law enforcement official who spoke on condition of anonymity.

"A flight attendant asked him to remove the device and he refused. The woman then stood up, turned around and threw a cup of water at him, the official said." The AP explained.

The Denver-bound plane was diverted to Chicago, where authorities talked to the two 48-year-old passengers. The plane — without them onboard — arrived an hour and 38 minutes late.

The maker of the device tells USA Today this is the first time they've heard of anything like this happening with their product.
