American Airlines passenger gets entire plane to himself after 18-hour delay
An American Airlines passenger was the only one on his flight after it was delayed by 18 hours.
Massachusetts State Police and the FBI reportedly responded to Boston Logan International Airport on Saturday morning for a “potential criminal act” on a flight from Charlotte, North Carolina that was heading to Boston, Massachusetts.
State police said in a press release that troopers were notified by American Airlines of a potential criminal act that occurred on American Flight 1441 while in the sky between Charlotte and Boston.
When the plane landed, it was met by Massachusetts State Police patrols and detectives, who began an investigation into the incident.

The investigation found the alleged act in question happened mid-flight, though police did not unveil what occurred.
Because the act occurred mid-flight, it falls under federal jurisdiction, and federal authorities asserted they have jurisdiction over the matter, according to Massachusetts State Police.
