Delta flight cancelled due to attendants fighting
A connecting flight from Rochester, NY to Atlanta on Delta Airlines was cancelled due to 2 female flight attendants fighting, press say.
Apparently, the disagreement escalated from verbal to physical, and the pilot made the decision to cancel the flight, FOX News was told. Passengers were placed on alternative connecting flights to Atlanta, the airline said.
The old Delta ad, "Delta is ready when you are" did not hold true in this case.
Two female flight attendants got into a verbal argument and the pilot decided to cancel the flight, Amy Howell, owner of Howell Marketing Strategies, which represents Pinnacle Airlines, told FoxNews.com.
"They told us we had to get off the plane because stewardesses were fighting," said passenger Corey Minton.
The Delta Connection flight was operated by Pinnacle Airlines, which has suspended the two women while an investigation is conducted, the site reported.
"The acts described are not acceptable," said Joe Williams, a spokesman for Pinnacle Airlines.
Passengers were reportedly placed on other flights.
