KANSAS CITY (November 22, 2015) – A Southwest Airlines flight originally scheduled to fly from Indianapolis to Los Angeles at 7:20 a.m. Sunday morning was diverted to Kansas City International Airport after several passengers on board displayed “suspicious behavior.”

Several passengers did not follow “crew instruction upon takeoff and continued to exhibit suspicious behavior inflight,” according to Southwest Airlines.

The passengers were taken off the plane and questioned by law enforcement, according to the FBI.

The remaining passengers exited the aircraft, and K-9 crews “swept” the plane as an extra precaution.

The aircraft continued on its originally scheduled flight plan and departed Kansas City at 9:20 a.m.

After questioning, the three “unruly” passengers were rebooked on a later flight.

Their nationality has not been released.
