FightingWomen[su_right_ad]A Sunwing Airlines flight to Cuba was forced to return to Toronto’s Pearson International Airport Wednesday night. It was reported that two female passengers, thought to be in their mid 20s, went to a lavatory, consumed a bit too much alcohol, lit a cigarette, set off a smoke alarm and then got into a physical altercation. Two Canadian CF-18 fighter jets intercepted the aircraft and escorted it back to Toronto.

The airline apologized for the inconvenience and said the flight, minus the young ladies, would take off again at around 11 p.m. Customers, they said, would be provided with complimentary meal vouchers.

Charges are pending.[su_sky_ad]

      That’s just what I’d expect a person that did this to say.

        and then I read the story about the girls in Vegas and I was pretty sure I needed to deny being there too!

    F-18s? This militarization of the police is getting way out of hand.

      The Ferguson Police Department just received their first shipment of tactical nukes.
