Claustrophobia Causes Flight Diversion to Boston

A United Airlines flight from London to Washington, DC, was diverted to Boston when a passenger suffering from claustrophobia had a bit of a freak out.  Fighter jets escorted the plane to Logan airport where it continued on without incident.  As these are rather hysterical times, an initial report said that the woman had Vaseline, a screwdriver, matches and a note on the Islamic militant group al Qaeda in her luggage.  Turns out, of course, that none of that was true.  Glad to see that various media outlets are so responsible.
