RAF jets scrambled after disruption on AA flight

LONDON (AP) - British officials say two Royal Air Force jets were dispatched after reports of a disruptive passenger on an American Airlines jet bound for Heathrow Airport.

The Ministry of Defense says the planes were recalled to base after the incident was found not to be terrorism-related.

Police say the plane, AA Flight 78 from Dallas, landed safely at about 11 a.m. (1100GMT) Tuesday and a woman was arrested on suspicion of endangering an aircraft.

The woman's details age, nationality and name were not released.
