Houston, we have a problem.
A Los Angeles-to-New York American Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing in Kansas City on Friday to remove an “unruly” passenger who wouldn’t stop singing, reports WBTV.
The passenger had been belting out the Whitney Houston (and Dolly Parton) classic “I Will Always Love You” at 30,000 feet — and refused to stop.
