Endeavor Air flight #3925, operated by Delta Airlines was delayed due to dispute between the Pilot and a Fight Attendant.
The 54-year-old pilot had a dispute with a 26-year-old flight attendant prior to takeoff aboard the plane bound for Portland, Maine, from LaGuardia Airport, causing a two-hour delay, local media reported.
As reported in New York daily news,
He and the attendant exchanged words in the aisle and he called her “a piece of s—,” a source said.
“His conversation was racist, inconsiderate and unprofessional,” the source said.
Each alleged the other had aggressively grabbed the other’s arm.
As many as six Port Authority police officers, some carrying “huge” guns, interviewed flight attendants in the jet bridge, a source said.
Cops determined neither were injured and made no arrests.
But the crew ordered both to disembark, causing the plane to leave at 1:30 p.m. — two hours late.
