An argument over leg room and reclining seats forced a Florida-bound flight from New York to divert to a different airport late on Monday, the third such incident of a midair disruption caused by passengers in about a week.

The moratorium marked at least the third consecutive summer that the porn industry has voluntarily shut down productions under its health-screening system because of performers who tested positive for a sexually transmitted disease. “We always err on the side of caution,” said Diane Duke, chief executive of the Los Angeles-based Free Speech Coalition, the porn trade industry group.
