Delta apologizes for flight attendants’ ‘altercation’

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS / JULY 2014

    A Delta Air Lines jet took off from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in Arlington, Va. in July 2014. Two of the airline’s flight attendants reportedly got into a fist fight on a Los Angeles-to-Minneapolis flight on Jan. 22.

ATLANTA » Delta Air Lines is apologizing to passengers after a confrontation between two flight attendants last month led pilots to make an unscheduled landing halfway through the trip.

The airline says the actions of the crew members didn’t reflect the professionalism expected of employees.

The Aviation Herald, a website that tracks accidents and other incidents involving planes, said Delta flight 2598 was headed from Los Angeles to Minneapolis on Jan. 22 when two flight attendants got into a fist fight and the captain decided to land in Salt Lake City.

The Herald said the plane stayed on the ground for more than an hour before resuming the flight to Minneapolis.

In a statement, Delta confirmed basics of the account. It said it sent a letter of apology to the plane’s passengers.
