There’s been no end to the airline drama as of late, with Delta making headlines again.
TMZ has video of one of their pilots hitting a female passenger while trying to break up a fight she was involved in. The altercation took place directly off the plane on the jetway at Atlanta airport last week, and shit goes down!
In the clip, you can see the male pilot trying to pull the woman apart, but then actually smacks one of them!
Why wasn’t security called??
Delta has since commented on the footage, with a rep explaining in a statement:
“We became aware of this incident and a video last week and immediately removed the pilot from duty while we completed a thorough investigation. The pilot has since been returned to work as our investigation found that his actions deescalated an altercation between passengers on the jetway floor during deplaning.”
Apparently, the women had also gotten into some sort of altercation on the plane as well, and were later escorted away by a Delta employee upon landing. Neither woman wanted to press charges against anyone, so we guess the pilot is off the hook.
Still, we can’t help but feel Delta should let their security handle these situations and not their pilots…
