Argument Prompted Captain To Cancel Trip
Delta Connection Flight 887 was cancelled on Thursday after a
fight between two female flight attendants. The ROC-ATL
flight, operated by Pinnacle Airlines, was taxiing back to the gate
when the incident occurred.
Joe Williams, a Pinnacle Airlines spokesman told the Associated
Press the spat erupted just the aircraft was returning to the gate
Thursday morning after a passenger became ill. Williams says
there was no physical contact and doesn't know the reason for what
he termed a "verbal disagreement."
Cable news station YNN talked to passengers that were displaced
by the sudden cancellation. Corey Minton said he and others
aboard were told they had to "get off the plane because
stewardesses were fighting." Another passenger complained "we've
got flight attendants arguing and fighting on the plane!"
As another winter storm started impacting flights along the East
coast, some passengers were worried that they would be stuck in
Rochester. One traveler was on the way to get married in
Cancun while others were in danger of missing a non-refundable
Both of the flight attendants were removed from duty while
Pinnacle investigates the incident. Williams says Delta found
alternate travel plans for passengers.
