BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts State Police say a passenger on a London-to-Boston British Airways flight has been restrained as she tried to enter the cockpit.

British Airways told state police that the woman tried to enter the cockpit Tuesday on Flight 213. The flight landed about a half-hour ahead of schedule at Boston's Logan International Airport at 1:30 p.m. A spokesman for state police says troopers were getting ready to board the plane to take the passenger into custody.

No other details were immediately available.

In a statement, British Airways called the passenger "unruly" and said the flight crew asked that police meet the flight in Boston. The airline says it does not tolerate abusive behavior, but it didn't elaborate.
