A flight from the US to Israel was forced to turn around after two passengers tried to sneak into business class.

Two Israelis refused to show their tickets when United Airlines cabin crew asked to prove they were in the correct cabin.

According to a fellow passenger, ‘a riot started’ and the flight was turned around, 90 minutes after take-off from New Jersey, the Jerusalem Post reports.

United Airlines confirmed the flight was turned around ‘due to disruptive passengers on board’, adding police met the aircraft when it landed back at the airport.

Meanwhile, American Airlines confirmed a flight to London returned to Miami last week because a first-class passenger refused to wear a facemask during the flight.

The airline said: “American Airlines flight 38 with service from Miami (MIA) to London (LHR) returned to MIA due to a disruptive customer refusing to comply with the federal mask requirement.”
