Los Angeles Flight Headed to Minnesota Lands in Salt Lake City After Flight Attendants Get Into a Fight
Tension is high on an airplane, at least for me. When a couple flight attendants start fighting, then it gets a little scary. It happened on a flight to MN.
Imagine this - you're on your way home to Minnesota and you made it past take-off, time to settle in for a movie or a good book, and you suddenly hear arguing and some pushing around. What would you do? At that point, personally, I'd feel the end of my life coming very soon. I hate flying though.
On January 22nd, a Delta Airlines flight from Los Angeles to Minneapolis/St. Paul experienced just this. Shortly after take-off, 2 flight attendants got into an altercation that led to the pilots decision to make an unscheduled landing in Salt Lake City for the safety of the passengers and crew.
After an hour being grounded, the flight took off again, heading to MSP. Because of the incident, all passengers we're given free flight vouchers or flyer miles.
From what I understand, Delta is a very high-level airline. The fact that this could even be possible, just plain scares me. What's next to happen in-flight...a drunk pilot? Oh yeah, that's happened plenty too. I may just stick to driving.
