Flight delayed after passenger becomes suspicious of equation –
An Italian economist says his flight was delayed after a fellow passenger saw him working on a differential equation and alerted the cabin crew. Guido Menzio was taken off and questioned by agents who did not identify themselves, after the woman next to him said she felt ill. He showed them what he had been writing and the flight eventually took off – more than two hours late. The University of Pennsylvania associate professor boarded the Philadelphia-Syracuse flight on Thursday on his way to Ontario, where he was due to give a lecture. Before the flight took off, the woman sitting next to him passed a note to a member of the cabin crew. She initially told them she was feeling unwell but then voiced her suspicions about Mr Menzio’s scribblings. He wrote: “It’s a bit funny. It’s a bit worrisome. “The lady just looked at me, looked at my writing of mysterious formulae, and concluded I was up to no good. “Because of that an entire flight was delayed.” [BBC]
