DL337. Bahamas won't allow landing

On the tarmac, word was Bahamian immigration wouldn't let someone on this flight in. Diverted to MIA, waiting there are vehicles with emergency lights. Could be interesting night, but with granddaughter and would have rather be check-in to hotel right now. They indicated not letting the whole plane in.

First I've heard of this happening. I guess it comes up rarely since most international flights can't simply be told "return to sender" by the receiving country (e.g. JFK-LHR can't well turn around while over Ireland). I would have thought they would normally have just bounced the pax in question.

Passenger must have felt unwell. They asked/saw passenger had been through area of infection and refused to let them in till checked out. EMS wouldn't have showed up at MIA if passenger wasn't unwell.

No pax was removed after all that, about a 3 hour sit at MIA. The pilot said discussions at the highest levels...

Traveling with my 8yo granddaughter who took it all in stride, much better than the woman behind me who was sighing, guffawing and slamming the tray back into place.

They should have thrown that woman off the plane. I get the frustration, but really slamming her tray table...

Glad your granddaughter has better manners than a grown woman. Love it.

Glad OP is more mature than me.. I might have set my seat into "rapid recline" if someone slammed the tray table into it just because they were peeved.

Reminds me when we had 4 hours on the ground at SFO with twin 2.5 yr olds. We were going MSP-HNL and had to stop and take on more fuel due to unexpected headwind and reroute for weather. Once fueled, they were getting a mis-match on how much fuel was loaded, then had computer errors. My kids were obviously getting a little stir crazy and happened to kick the seat in front of them a few times, which set off the lady in front of us who was on her honeymoon. She hit her call button to complain about all things, the FA gave them a drink which settled them down.

The people behind us had packed a cooler of food and began offering meat and cheese to my boys saying how well they were doing.

Good on your granddaughter! At her age (okay a little younger), my daughter was a kicking fool. She now has some perspective and has a lot of patience for little kids behind her.
