United isn’t the only airline that’s under fire these days…
A video has emerged of a Delta Air Lines pilot smacking a passenger who was fighting with another passenger at the Atlanta airport.
TMZ reported that the incident occurred on April 21 after the plane landed at the airport and passengers were deplaning Flight 1827, which flies between Atlanta and Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
Two women started fighting and the Delta pilot, apparently trying to break up the brawl, grabbed one of the women by the arm and struck her with his hand.
Delta officials said in a statement on Saturday that they immediately removed the pilot from duty after being made aware last week of the scuffle, which occurred as passengers were deplaning Flight 1827, which flies between Atlanta and Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
The pilot has since returned to work, Delta officials said, because their investigation revealed that “his actions de-escalated an altercation between passengers.”
