FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WTHR) — Last night, a Delta Flight from Fort Wayne to Texas was de-boarded in an incident involving a passenger and flight attendant. Four adults and a child were escorted off the plane by police officers after one passenger allegedly violated Delta’s on-board electronic device policy.
The video posted on Instagram last night shows a passenger calmly arguing with a flight attendant over failing to follow phone policy, according to the Instagram post.

According to the female passenger in the video, several other passengers chimed in, but the situation only escalated.
Delta offered to reschedule the five passengers' flights but offered no hotel accommodations.
According to a Delta employee, the flight attendant felt “unsafe” and “uncomfortable” with how she was being treated.
The unfortunate situation left four adults and a child “stranded” at Fort Wayne International Airport.
SkyWest airlines, that operated the flight in partnership with Delta, released the following statement:
"We take all allegations of discrimination seriously and are reviewing reports from SkyWest flight 4527 operating as Delta Connection. We are disappointed that our customers had this experience and are working with our partner Delta to follow up directly with the customers involved."
