Nor did she disrupt the passengers...
E! News reports that while Lindsay Lohan switched flights to get from JFK in New York to LAX in Los Angeles, it wasn't because she delayed her Virgin America flight or disrupted the passengers. It was all during the time she was trying to get to LA for her court hearing, she it was learned she will spend 90 days in locked rehab.
A source said: "I'm on the plane last night getting ready to take off from JFK to LAX. Lindsay Lohan is sitting across the aisle from me. They announce that we're going to have to stop in [Las Vegas] for a refuel because of some fairly routine maintenance issue that will require us to fly at lower altitude than typical. Ms. Lohan freaks out a bit, announcing to those of us nearby, 'I have to get to court in the morning! I don't want to go back to jail!' And while the flight is waiting for approval for takeoff, she's stressing big-time, pacing and making a string of phone calls. The flight crew was awesome, very professional and kind, working to accommodate her. At the last moment, she apologetically gets off the plane."
The flight crew announced the delay around 7:50 PM, with the flight scheduled to happen at 8:05 PM. Lohan "fretted a lot while they were waiting for an offical clearance to take off," but she did not delay the flight.
The source added: "I think that was the tipping point for her. Honestly, I feel for her. It truly wasn't a...diva moment. It was a scared-little-girl moment."
The plane ended up arriving in LAX on time after all, while Lohan was on a private plane from energy drink company Mr. Pink and was late.
