A JetBlue flight from Kennedy Airport to Las Vegas on Saturday morning had to be diverted to Detroit because of an unruly male passenger, airline officials said.

Flight 211 left JFK at 7 a.m. and landed in Detroit at 8:30 a.m., leading to a two-hour delay, JetBlue spokesman Sebastian White said.

White said he had no other details of the disturbance "other than being an unruly customer."

The plane, which was scheduled to arrive in Las Vegas at 9:30 a.m., made it there at 11:30 a.m. There were 146 passengers and five crew members onboard.
