According to CBS Denver, a passenger on a flight from Eagle, Colorado, to Newark last week was sneezing and coughing, and others who were sitting nearby became disruptive, fearing the passenger was sick.
Denver Police told KDVR that the flight was re-routed to Denver and three disruptive passengers were removed.
The sneezing passenger told United officials that their allergies were acting up. When screened on the plane, the passenger did not have a fever, according to the Associated Press. The passenger was allowed to continue on the flight. ■
