from Robert J. McCarthy of the Buffalo News,
Oh, what a party it must have been for the Russian hockey team after their big win over Canada on Wednesday.
But it apparently caught up with the World Junior Hockey champions. They were kicked off a flight from Buffalo Niagara International Airport early this morning after sources said disruptive behavior after a night of celebration posed a safety threat.
“The crew of a flight from Buffalo to Atlanta denied boarding to 30 passengers as a result of unruly behavior,” said Delta spokeswoman Susan Elliott. “This was an effort to ensure safe operation of the flight. They will be rebooked on a future flight.”
