May 13, 2013: An American Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing after a woman refused to stop singing Whitney Houston's 'I Will Always Love You'.

A domestic flight in the United States was forced to make an emergency landing after a woman disrupted passengers by repeatedly singing the Whitney Houston hit 'I Will Always Love You'.

The 'A Capella' performance took place on an American Airlines flight from Los Angeles to New York last Thursday, WBTV reports.

But the pilot was forced to interrupt the journey and make an unscheduled stop at Kansas City as the woman's singing became too much for travellers and flight staff to bear.

"The woman was being disruptive and was removed from the plane for interfering with the flight crew," airport spokesman Joe McBride said.

"There was a federal air marshal on the aircraft, who subdued the woman and put her in cuffs and removed her from the plane."

Video of the incident shows the woman defiantly continuing to croon as she is led down the aircraft's aisle in handcuffs.

February 12, 2012: Whitney Houston reached the peak of her success in the 80s and 90s with hits such as ‘I Will Always Love You’.

The woman was interviewed and released without charge.

Mr McBride said she was forced to find her own way to her destination after the airline refused to fly her to New York.
