A flight from Montreal to Cuba had to return to Trudeau International Airport last night under the escort of a fighter jet after an unruly passenger began uttering threats. The traveler was taken into police custody, and the other 170 passengers on board were told that the next flight would leave sometime this morning. It was the second incident yesterday involving a North American flight; officials say a Delta Airlines passenger assaulted a flight attendant about 45 minutes into a Beijing-bound flight from Seattle.
