The headline might be a little misleading and perhaps it should have said “flight attendant forces aircraft to land”.
It seems the friendly skies were anything but on a recent Delta Air Lines service when two female flight attendants got into a fist fight.
The mid-air brawl took place on flight 2598 from Los Angeles to Minneapolis.
The captain elected to make an unscheduled landing in Salt Lake City.
A third woman who tried to break up the fight was also hit in the melee.
Sadly there is no UTube recording available as far as we know. It surely would have broken all records for a fisticuffs show.
The plane took off again at Salt Lake City after a delay of more than one hour.
