‘Songbird’ grounded for singing too loudly on plane

Police officers forcibly removed a passenger from a Caribbean Airlines aircraft waiting to take off in New York after she refused to stop singing at the top of her lungs Christine Roberts reports for New York’s Daily News.

The Caribbean Airline’s pilot had already taxied out of the gate at John F. Kennedy Airport before Ballantyne began her performance, delaying the Trinidad and Tobago-bound flight.

A Florida woman was booted from a Caribbean-bound plane because fellow passengers didn’t like her in-flight entertainment.

Police officers forcibly removed Marsha Ballantyne from a Caribbean Airlines aircraft waiting to take off in New York after she refused to stop singing at the top of her lungs, MSNBC reports.

The 32-year-old “became belligerant” after she was repeatedly asked by staff on board to lower her voice, according to airline spokesperson Clint Williams.

The pilot had already taxied out of the gate at John F. Kennedy Airport before Ballantyne began her performance, delaying the Trinidad and Tobago-bound flight.

No charges were filed against the songstress, who was rebooked on a later flight.
