A Delta flight bound for Amsterdam turned back to Seattle last night after a passenger became unruly some 30 minutes into the flight, reports the AP. A Delta spokeswoman wouldn't comment on the specifics of the disturbance, but a TSA spokeswoman said the passenger was taken to a local medical facility. The flight was rescheduled for today.
