Jacksonville, F.L. – A Delta flight had to be diverted Monday night after another passenger fight over personal space.
The flight was heading from New York’s Laguardia airport to Florida when a woman who was trying to sleep on her tray table, took issue with the person in front of her leaning her seat back.
According to one witness, the woman started screaming and swearing.
“She was just going nuts. She was like, ‘I lost a dog. I lost two dogs in the last month and I want her off of here or I’m going to leave or I want you to stop the plane,’” the witness said.
The pilot landed the plane in Jacksonville.
The diversion marks the third such flight inconvenience in recent weeks.
