Delta airline flight makes emergency landing after cabin crew air rage

A plane was forced to make an emergency landing after cabin crew started a raging fight.

A Delta Airlines flight from Los Angeles to Minneapolis was redirected back to the ground after two stewardesses became embroiled in a fight and a third staff member was subsequently punched in the face.

The captain took the decision to land at Salt Lake City, Utah, where they were removed from the aircraft.

The flight took off again after 300 passengers waited for 80 minutes on the runway, according to the Aviation Herald.

Delta have since issued a statement, which said: "We apologise to those customers who were inconvenienced after flight 2598 from Los Angeles to Minneapolis made an unscheduled stop in Salt Lake City following an altercation involving two flight attendants on board.

"The actions of these crew members in no way reflect the values and professionalism we expect from all of our employees. We strive to ensure that every customer has a great experience with Delta. We regret that our customers' experience did not live up to our expectations."
