Delta flight fist fight

A mid-air dust-up between two flight attendants in the US has prompted an apology to passengers from Delta Airlines.

The altercation was alarming enough for the pilots to make an unscheduled landing halfway through the trip.

Delta 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 January 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.

Delta confirmed to Today in the Sky on Monday that an altercation occurred on the Jan. 22 flight.

“Delta apologizes to those customers who were inconvenienced after flight 2598 from Los Angeles to Minneapolis-St. Paul made an unscheduled stop in Salt Lake City following an altercation involving two flight attendants on board. The actions of these crew members in no way reflect the values and professionalism we expect from all of our employees,” Delta says in its statement.
