A flight headed to Jamaica was diverted back to Toronto after a passenger made an “unfounded claim regarding coronavirus,” WestJet said in a statement Tuesday morning. WestJet Flight 2707 with 243 passengers on board, enroute to Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay, turned back to Pearson International Airport after only two hours in the air when an “unruly guest” announced he was sick, the air carrier’s spokesman, Morgan Bell, said.
