Flight Attendant’s Fistfight Diverts Delta Flight

Flight Attendant’s Fistfight Diverts Delta Flight

A mile-high brawl between two team members—and one innocent bystander who stepped in to break it up—caused an unscheduled landing for Delta Flight 2598, the Aviation Herald reports.

Delta reportedly sent a letter of apology to customers who were on the plane, acknowledging that "some of our team members did not display their best behavior. We expect our flight crew to be nothing but courteous and professional at all times and what you experienced was far from that. I am sorry we didn't deliver on our brand promise for you today."

The plane resumed its flight after a delay of more than an hour. There is no word of whether the two flight attendants were still on board.
