Delta Flight Canceled Because Of Flight Attendants Fighting

There seems to be some disagreement about whether or not actual punches were thrown, but it seems that some sort of fight between two flight attendants caused a Delta Connection flight to be canceled.

The flight, operated by Pinnacle Airlines, returned to the gate after a passenger became ill. That’s when the fight started.

From the Atlantic Journal-Constitution:

YNN Rochester, a cable news Web site, quoted a passenger, Steve Mazur, who said the two female attendants “got into a fistfight on the plane. The pilot decided to kick everyone off the plane.”

“They told us we had to get off the plane because stewardesses were fighting,” another passenger, Corey Minton, told YNN.

A spokesperson for the airline says it was just a “verbal disagreement,” but confirmed that the employees have been held off the job while the company investigates.

“The acts described are not acceptable,” he said.
