A wintry blast of heavy rain, wind and snow across the eastern United States disrupted Thanksgiving travel plans on Wednesday for some of the millions of Americans hitting the roads and taking to the skies on the busiest holiday travel day of the year.

    For the second time this week, a plane was forced to land because of a seat-recline fight. A Paris flight bound for Miami was forced to land at Logan International Airport in Boston after Edmund Alexandre, 61, of Paris became enraged when the passenger in front of him reclined her seat. When a flight attendant tried to calm him down, Alexandre proceeded to chase him down the aisle. An air marshal cuffed Alexandra and later arrested him at Logan. Alexandra faces federal and state charges for interfering with the American Airlines crew. On Sunday, a similar dispute over a seat recline forced a plane flying from Newark to Denver to land in Chicago.
