Miller began calling the airline about 4:19 AM.
She stated her cousin was not allowed on
airplanes and she was a flight risk. A JetBlue
representative informed Miller that if the
cousin had the required documents and cleared
the security screening there was nothing the
airline could do.
Miller replied and stated “Oh my God, you guys
are going to be sued, it’s not even funny. Let
her go on the plane and then you guys have a
million-dollar lawsuit against you, that’s fine.
I just hope she doesn’t blow up the plane.”
Miller continue to call the airline in one of
the calls she said “Please tell me the plane was
stopped ... my cousin is going through a lot of
things right now, she is not thinking clearly,
she is psychotic, she is very suicidal.”
As a result of the increasingly alarming nature
of Miller’s allegations, the flight was diverted
and forced to land at Buffalo. It was
subsequently determined that she and her cousin
had been involved in a personal dispute.
Miller had her initial court appearance on
Tuesday. She will appear before the court on
July 6 at 10 a.m. for a detention hearing. If
convicted, Miller faces up to five years in
prison, to be followed by three years of
supervised release, and a $250,000 fine.
