The flight carrying 267 passengers and crew made an emergency landing Friday evening at Stansted Airport north of London. Essex County Police said officers boarded the aircraft and arrested two men.
Police said Saturday that it was a criminal matter rather than suspected terrorism, but they gave no details of what the two suspects were doing aboard the plane.
The flight originated in Colombo, Sri Lanka, and had been scheduled to land at London's Heathrow Airport.
