Drunk passenger forces Aeromexico plane to make emergency landing in Cancun
A drunk passenger caused Aeroméxico’s AM-143 flight, which departed Miami for Mexico City, to stop its route and land in Cancun.
The fact was spread by Twitter users who reported that the man did not want to follow the instructions of the airline staff and was insulting and yelling, apparently under the influence of alcohol or probably other substances.
In a video the passenger is observed while shouting at one of the flight attendants: “I will not be disrespected! Imbecile, fagot! ”

Immediately a steward approaches and invites him to take a seat, but the man does not calm down.
It was after this scene when the decision was made to land in Cancún, to evict the man from the plane, and he was allegedly detained.
Although Twitter users tweeted the fact at 8:30 pm on Thursday January 12, until after midnight the airline had not published any explanation of the incident.

The flight that left Miami to Mexico City had to make an unscheduled stopover because a passenger apparently in a drunken state began to alter the order inside the aircraft.
