Delta Airlines (DLTA) Apologizes After Pro-Trump Passenger Disruption

Posted on

On a flight from Atlanta Georgia, to Allenton, Pennsylvania last Tuesday, a man stood up and disrupted the flight with his support of Donald Trump. Someone took a video of it, and it shows the man wearing glasses and a hat, clapping and screaming about how much he supports the new President Elect.

He yells, “Donald Trump baby!” He also screams, “We got some Hillary bitches on here? Come on, baby. Trump! That’s what I thought. That’s what I’m talking about.”

Delta issued a statement that reads, “We are sorry to our customers who experienced this disruption,” the airlines said in a statement. We have followed up with the teams involved and all agree that this customer should not have been allowed to continue on the flight. Our responsibility for ensuring all customers feel safe and comfortable with Delta includes requiring civil behavior from everyone.

“The behavior we see in this video does not square with our training or culture and follow up will continue so we can better ensure our employees will know they will be fully supported to make the right decisions when these issues arise.”

The passenger was banned from Delta for life.
