Disruptive Passenger Taken off Flight Bound For Florida From Detroit Metropolitan

Filed in Gather News Channel by on September 11, 2010 0 Comments

A disruptive passenger was taken off a Delta Airlines flight bound for Tampa, Florida. One hour into the flight’s travel time, the captain returned the plane and its passengers back to Detroit Metropolitan Airport due to the disruptive passenger, who was taken off the flight.

Details of the airline incident?

A disruptive passenger was taken off a Delta Airbus A320 commercial jet bound for southern Florida in Hillsborough county, according to Forbes.com.  However, after just one hour after the aircraft departed from a Detroit terminal, it returned after a passenger began displaying bizarre behavior.  Authorities report that, as a precaution, based on homeland security measures, the distracting passenger, an un-named female, was removed from the flight bound for Tampa.

The troublesome passenger that was separated off the Florida-bound flight, did not display any threatening, vulgar, or boisterous behavior, according Sandra Berchtold, FBI spokesperson.  However, the female disruptive traveler was still removed from Delta flight 1721 according to standard protocol.

Safety as sound practice

The unsettling customer who was taken off the Florida-bound Delta flight was not arrested, but was not allowed to continue on with her travel.  FBI officials were cryptic about the female’s behavior, but it was disturbing enough to alarm the flight crew. Although she was taken off the flight, there was no arrest.

Situations like the peculiar passenger who was removed from this flight have increased ever since more precautions were put in place by the Department of Homeland Security.  This occurred following the World Trade Center disaster aka 9/11.  The good news is travelers and flight crews are more vigilant about security.  In this incident, the passengers were inconvenienced for several hours, but allowed on their way.  The removal of the disruptive passenger off the flight is a small price to pay for safety.
