An airport spokesperson says the passenger was removed from the flight for taking inappropriate photographs of flight attendants.
“The most important thing was it was a full flight, everyone is safe and got home, and during the current atmosphere you can never be too careful,” Gov. Christie said when he arrived in Boston.
