A clash between two female flight attendants led to flying fists Friday, forcing a Delta airlines flight from Los Angeles to make an unscheduled landing in Salt Lake City.
The plane was originally en route to Minneapolis.
According to the Aviation Herald, the fight stemmed from a disagreement over “work issues”.
The captain decided to land after a third attendant was struck in an attempt to break up the fight.
The airline has issued a letter of apology to passengers following the brawl, stating 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 flight was grounded for about 80 minutes. The flight successfully landed in Minneapolis with a delay of 75 minutes.
Two Delta attendants fist fight in air. Note to 3rd attendant: Don't try to break up 2 women fighting. Men? Maybe. Women? NEVER. #DeltaMMA— Shannon (@ninjacarhorn) January 30, 2016
