On Monday, Delta confirmed the kerfuffle to The Washington Post, as well as apologizing for the inconvenience to its passengers.
“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 statement read. “The actions of these crew members in no way reflect the values and professionalism we expect from all of our employees.”
The airline said it offered airline miles to its frequent flyers and travel vouchers to non-frequent flyers.
Either way, they sure got a better show than if Taken 3 were the in-flight movie.
