A JetBlue airline had to return to the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston yesterday after the pilot observed "something untoward" in the cockpit 15 minutes into the flight.

Alfred McDonald, a senior director at the airport, told Nationwide Radio that there were no reported injuries. The passengers were immediately taken off the flight after the plane made the emergency landing.

The incident caused a delay in other flights landing at the airport.
