Atlanta - Delta Air Lines is apologizing to passengers after a confrontation between two flight attendants last month led pilots to make an unscheduled landing halfway through the trip.

The airline says the actions of the crew members didn’t reflect the professionalism expected of employees.

The Aviation Herald, a website that tracks accidents and other incidents involving planes, said Delta flight 2598 was headed from Los Angeles to Minneapolis on Jan. 22 when two flight attendants got into a fist fight and the captain decided to land in Salt Lake City.

The Herald said the plane stayed on the ground for more than an hour before resuming the flight to Minneapolis.

In a statement, Delta confirmed basics of the account. It said it sent a letter of apology to the plane’s passengers.

What does anybody expect? Years ago, there were standards; today, the lowest of the lowest are hired on the job, not only to be a flight attendant, but also to be a ticket agent, and a gate agent. The two flight attendants should be fired. However, they probably won't be, because they have a strong union, which back them to the hilt.

Why do you elevate their status by calling them "flight attendants"? Those who wander up and down the cabin aisles are no more than waiters and waitresses and bathroom attendants. It is only the senior staff who have a serious job. Delta should be awarding a lot of bonus miles for this major inconvenience and breach of contract.
