KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

It was a coast-to-coast flight that some passengers won't soon forget.

The American Airlines flight made an emergency stop at Kansas City International Airport due to an unruly passenger, authorities said.

The woman disrupted the flight in part by belting out Whitney Houston songs. And based on the video posted by a passenger on the flight, the woman won't be getting a golden ticket onto the American Idol competition anytime soon.

The American Airlines flight departed Los Angeles International Airport at 3:30 p.m. Thursday. It was headed to John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.

But it made an unscheduled landing at KCI at 6:06 p.m.

"The woman was being disruptive and was removed from the plane for interfering with the flight crew," airport spokesman Joe McBride said Friday. "There was a federal air marshal on the aircraft, who subdued the woman and put her in cuffs and removed her from the plane."

As she was leaving the plane, she crooned, "I will always love you," which was written by Dolly Parton. Both Parton and Houston performed the song.

The plane took off from KCI at 7:11 p.m.

The woman was interviewed and released without any charges. McBride said American refused to fly the woman on to her destination, so she had to make other arrangements.

McBride said the woman reportedly claimed she was diabetic.
