Story about plane diversion family goes viral
The story of a Canadian family who caused a flight to be diverted to Bermuda after causing a ruckus on the plane has gone viral.
The Royal Gazette reported earlier this week how David McNeil Sr, 54, his wife Donna McNeil, 52, and their son McNeil Jr, 22, from Mabou, Nova Scotia were fined at Magistrates’ Court over the incident.
