SEATTLE (AP) — A Delta Air Lines spokeswoman said Saturday an unruly passenger on a flight bound for Amsterdam forced pilots to return to the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport shortly after takeoff.

Airline spokeswoman Leslie Parker said Flight 224 left the Sea-Tac Airport just after 6 p.m. Saturday. About 30 minutes later, she said, a passenger disturbance prompted pilots to return to Seattle. The plane landed safely at 7:27 p.m. No one was injured.

Ms. Parker did not comment on the details of the disturbance.

She said the flight was canceled, and another flight, specifically for the Amsterdam-bound passengers, will depart Sunday.

A Transporation Security Administration spokeswoman told the Seattle Times that the disruptive passenger was taken to a local medical facility.
