- “Situations like these are rare and regrettable for the vast majority of our customers and Delta has zero tolerance for unruly behavior at our airports and aboard our aircraft,” Delta said, per CNN. “We applaud our flight crew’s quick decision to divert and address the situation as expeditiously as possible so the remainder of our customers can resume their travels.”
Delta did not explain what the so-called “disturbance” included.
Earlier this year, the Federal Aviation Administration said it will propose more than $500,000 in fines for 34 passengers who were unruly on flights. Such disturbances included people who refused to wear face masks or who hit flight attendants. In some cases, passengers threw their luggage across the cabin.
In September, a 61-year-old man was arrested on a flight into Salt Lake City International Airport after he yelled at a flight’s staff, growled like a dog and yelled obscenities on a flight, as I wrote for the Deseret News.
