Two women got into a shocking altercation in a Delta airlines boarding area at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport that involved the Pilot of the aircraft.
The two women can be seen exchanging blows in the video before they crash to the floor and get locked in a wrestling match. Another person tries to break-up the fight as the pilot decides to step in.
The pilot then delivers a punch to one of the women’s arms and then saunters off, leaving the altercation as he found it. Why did he decide to involve himself in this? No explanation has been made available. The video was reportedly filmed on April 21, and the pilot was placed on temporary suspension, but Delta concluded he was not in the wrong.
Delta released the following statement, “We became aware of this incident and a video last week and immediately removed the pilot from duty while we completed a thorough investigation… Local law enforcement was called to respond at the time of the incident. The pilot has since been returned to work as our investigation found that his actions deescalated an altercation between passengers on the jetway floor during deplaning.”
