Sunwing has confirmed that two its passengers aboard flight 656, namely 25 Lilia Radmanski and 26-year-old Milana Muzikante, are scheduled to appear an Ontario court on Thursday after they allegedly disrupted a Cuba-bound plane and forced it to return to Toronto. According to the police, the female suspects will be transported to a Brampton court on Thursday morning for a bail hearing.
Meanwhile, Sunwing spokesperson, Janine Chapman, mentioned on Wednesday night that the flight had to turn back after two “unruly” passengers became disruptive after consuming a “significant” quantity of duty free alcohol in the plane’s washroom. Thereafter, the passengers allegedly lit a cigarette and sounded the plane’s smoke alarm, before getting into a “physical altercation” with each other. Chapman stated that the two suspects allegedly made a “threat against the aircraft, which was considered non-credible given their condition.” Flight 656 was bound for Varadero, Cuba, but turned around after the incident occurred just over North Carolina.
