Southwest flight diverts after passenger allegedly smokes in lavatory

June 1, 2018


A Southwest Airlines jet made an emergency landing in California following reports that a passenger was smoking in a bathroom.


Southwest says Flight 1250 from Los Angeles to San Francisco was diverted Wednesday. The carrier confirmed to NBC Bay Area that  "a customer was allegedly smoking in the aft lavatory."


The plane landed safely at San Jose Mineta International Airport, about 50 miles south of San Francisco.


"The flight landed without incident where it was met by local law enforcement, and the customer in question was turned over to local authorities," Southwest added in a statement to NBC Bay Area.


The remaining 32 passengers were placed on other aircraft to continue their trips, according to the airline.
