    Flight Attendants' Fight Grounds ATL Flight


    ROCHESTER, NY -- A flight from Rochester to Atlanta never got off the ground Thursday because of a fight between two flight attendants.

    The dispute broke out while Delta Connections flight 887 was still on the ground, according to Pinnacle Airlines, which operates the flight for Delta.

    "Out of an abundance of caution the captain grounded the flight," according to Joe Williams, spokesman for Pinnacle Airlines.

    All 75 passengers aboard the flight were booked on other flights, according to Williams.

    The two flight attendants have been taken off-duty pending an internal investigation.


    My Take:

    Had this been two passengers they would have been arrested. Why are the Flight Attendants be held to a diffrent standard. Insane!

    Take about your hostile work invornment

    Can you imagine being a passenger on this flight, "Oh the horror"!

    This is as crazy, as all out doors!

    Probably because as flight attendants TSA, Homeland Security and the airport itself already have dossiers a mile long on them. They know who they are, where they live and so on and so forth. With a passenger of course they would at least detain them pending a more in depth background check and make further determinations from there. Unless you're flagged, they don't really know who the fuck you are or how batshit crazy you might be. I don't look at it so much as a double standard, but an issue of practicality.
