Another day, another ridiculous incident on a Delta flight, however this one involves the use of physical force. In a case of “you have to see it, to believe it” a woman aboard a Delta airlines flight in Detroit, Michigan had to be physically dragged from the plane after she refused to comply with a handful of boarding procedures.
Tuesday morning passengers on an early Delta flight out of Detroit definitely got more than they bargained for, as they were all witness to a fellow passenger literally being dragged off of the flight by police officers who responded to complaints of her behavior. This behavior included failure to board her flight on time and refusal to properly store her luggage in the overhead compartment bin. CBS News has further details about this bizarre case, including the status of future charges being pressed against the woman.
Via CBS News:
An incident on a Delta flight in Detroit was caught on camera Monday, as a woman was dragged down the aisle of the plane by police. Detroit Metropolitan Airport said in a statement that the incident occurred at approximately 8 a.m.
“Delta Air Lines contacted Detroit Metropolitan Airport’s police department requesting assistance with a passenger who would not comply with boarding and baggage check procedures at a McNamara Terminal gate,” DTW said in a statement. Delta said in a statement to CBS News transportation correspondent Kris Van Cleave that Delta flight 2083 bound for San Diego incurred a slight departure delay “due to a passenger not complying with boarding and baggage check procedures.”
When officers arrived, Delta stated the woman could not remain on board. Despite repeated requests by officers, the woman refused to leave the aircraft and had to be removed. DTW said the woman is yet to be formally charged, but add “she was arrested for violation of airport ordinances, including failure to leave the aircraft.”
