Delta is the new airline getting backlash online after kicking a man off and Atlanta flight.
Kima Hamilton was trying to get home on a Milwaukee flight from Atlanta, when he had a pretty urgent call to the restroom. It ended up getting him escorted from the plane. Thankfully he wasn't dragged off, but still pretty ridiculous.
Another passenger filmed the confrontation and shared it on Youtube. Fellow passengers also expressed how inappropriate they felt it was by the airline. Especially after the plane was stranded on the tarmac for an extra 30 mins before take-off. They had to return to the gate and escort Hamilton off.
Youtuber user Kay GLR wrote, "After waiting on tarmac with no foreseeable information that we would take off anytime soon, passenger quickly used bathroom (less than 1 minute). Delta determined to return to the gate (not too far away!) and remove the passenger. This is the first Delta employee who came on (Horatio) speaking not very kindly to the passenger"
"Our flight crews are extensively trained to ensure the safety and security of all customers," Delta released in a statement after the incident. "It is imperative that passengers comply with crew instructions during all phases of flight, especially at the critical points of takeoff and landing."
Here is my parody of "Drunk On A Plane" called, "Dragged Off A Plane" for all the chaos with airlines these days.
