7 April 2023: En route from San Francisco to Chicago

A passenger aboard an Alaska Airlines flight, Chloe M. Dasilva, 32, was charged in a federal criminal complaint after the flight was diverted from its course and landed at Kansas City International Airport. Dasilva was charged with one count of interfering with flight crew members and attendants in a complaint filed in the U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Mo., on Friday, April 7. An affidavit filed in support of the federal criminal complaint alleges that Dasilva interfered with the duties of flight attendants while she was a passenger aboard Alaska Airlines flight 456. The flight was scheduled for nonstop service from San Francisco International Airport in San Francisco, California, to Chicago O’Hare International Airport in Chicago, Ill. The flight was diverted into Kansas City International Airport in Kansas City, Mo., at approximately 4:20 a.m. Friday, April 7. The affidavit says Dasilva, who had been disruptive during the flight, was involved in a confrontation with a male flight attendant, cussing, yelling and threatening to kill him. A flight attendant and two passengers used zip ties to restrain her. One of the passengers switched seats with a mother and baby who were seated directly in front of Dasilva for their safety.
