    A Georgia woman and her fellow Delta passengers were prevented from singing the National Anthem as crews unloaded the casket of a fallen soldier at Atlanta’s airport last weekend. Pamela Dee Gaudry was on a flight toward Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport when she learned the body of a fallen soldier – 29-year-old Army Staff Sgt. Dusting Wright – was on her plane. Gaudry, the wife of a deceased Army captain, wanted to honor the Special Forces soldier who was among four U.S. troops killed in an attack in Niger on Oct. 4, by singing the National Anthem. She went around the...

    Eat your heart out, United! A Delta flight that was heading to Puerto Rico from JFK airport on Wednesday managed to outrun Hurricane Irma — flying directly into the path of the Category 5 storm as it was bearing down on the island — before landing and taking off within the span of an hour. The Boeing 737 was reportedly full of passengers after leaving the Big Apple at 8:12 a.m., according to FlightAware. The online tracking system showed Flight 431 arriving in San Juan at 12:01 p.m. — just as Irma was making landfall. Images posted on Twitter depicted...

    A Delta Airlines pilot and a flight attendant flew off the handle Monday at LaGuardia Airport, causing a two-hour delay, sources said. 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, sources said. 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...

    After a period in America when we were faced with incident after incident of airline passengers becoming cause célčbre because of questionable decisions by airline personnel, you would think the airlines would adjust how they treat the people who pay the freight. Instead Delta Airlines decided to pick a fight with one the most well-known social/political commentators in the country. That outcome could not end well. Ann Coulter booked a flight from New York LaGuardia to West Palm Beach, Florida, on Saturday, July 15th. Coulter had booked a seat in what Delta refers to as their Comfort+ seating. As a...

    I think I've found the core problem with health care in America. And guess what? It involves Delta Airlines! A few weeks ago, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow was going on and on about a "single insurance provider" that pays for 49 percent of all births, as well as full health care costs of almost 40 percent of all children in the United States. This single "insurer," Maddow said, was the biggest "health insurance provider in the country by a mile." Maddow was talking about Medicaid, which, of course, is not "insurance" but "welfare." When we're allowed to call things whatever we...

    Columnist Ann Coulter is a tall woman, and apparently, she spent some time selecting the right sort of seat for a person who needs more legroom on frequent flights, perhaps to avoid deep-vein thrombosis, or perhaps to fly more comfortably.  She spent the time and paid the extra money to get an aisle seat in an emergency row on a Delta flight, which would have done the job. For some reason, as the flight was boarding, the airline decided to move her seat to the window in the same row and seat a group of other passengers, perhaps because...

    Full title: After 28 hours, Delta Air Line’s only answer for why it made Ann Coulter give up her prepaid seat is “I don’t know” Delta made Coulter give up her prepaid seat. When Coulter asked why, the flight attendant’s answer was “I don’t know.” 28 hours after the incident, Delta has still not offered Coulter any other explanation for its actions. If Delta did have a legitimate reason for doing what it did, it should say what that reason was. Otherwise, Delta will have given the impression that one or more of its employees simply did it out of...

Joseph Daniel Hudek IV, 23, of Tampa, Florida, appeared in U.S. District Court on Friday. He did not speak during the hearing. His attorney, Robert Flennaugh II, declined to comment, according to The AP. ... According to one flight attendant cited in the complaint, "Hudek did not seem impacted...

    Remember how well Kathy Griffin’s little “prank” where she symbolically decapitated the President went over? Oh, man. What a hoot. She’s a real cut-up, isn’t she? (Er… sorry.) Rather than being embraced by the Left in a unified block, nearly everyone turned on her and declared that we didn’t need that sort of thing in our national discussion. Even CNN cut her loose, and corporate sponsors quickly moved away from any projects with her name associated with it. Well now we may have the next example of this phenomenon. A performing arts group known as The Public Theater, based in...

    Several Hollywood celebrities have called for a boycott of Delta Air Lines and Bank of America after the two companies announced Sunday they would no longer sponsor the New York City Public Theater over a controversial staging of Julius Caesar in which a Trump look-alike is brutally murdered on stage. In separate statements Sunday, Delta and Bank of America said they would no longer sponsor this summer’s Free Shakespeare in the Park series over the Oskar Eustis-directed production of Julius Caesar, which opened in previews last month and is set to open for a limited run Monday in Central Park’s...

    Delta Airlines and Bank of America pulled out of their sponsorship of New York’s Public Theater on Sunday over a production of “Julius Caesar” that re imagines the main character as President Trump. Shortly after Delta, who was a four-year sponsor, made its announcement, Bank of America yanked its support as well. The Shakespeare in the Park play tells the story of the leader assassinated by Roman senators over the fear that he’s becoming too tyrannical, but rather than the original setting, the production stages Caesar (Gregg Henry) and his wife, Calpurnia, (Tina Benko) with Donald and Melania Trump lookalikes....

    Delta Airlines announced on Sunday that it was withdrawing its sponsorship of New York City’s nonprofit Public Theater over a new Shakespeare in the Park production of “Julius Caesar” featuring a facsimile of Donald Trump in the title role meeting a very bloody end. “No matter what your political stance may be, the graphic staging of Julius Caesar at this summer’s Free Shakespeare in the Park does not reflect Delta Air Lines’ values,” the company said in a statement, ending a four-year-old sponsorship. “Their artistic and creative direction crossed the line on the standards of good taste.

Brian and Brittany Shear had paid for a seat used by their toddler on a flight from Hawaii back to California, where they live, when a flight attendant told them they had to give it up, claiming it was overbooked.

    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A Southern California family says they were kicked off an overbooked Delta airplane because they refused to yield a seat held by their young son. The Schear family of Huntington Beach says they were flying from Hawaii to Los Angeles last week when airline staff asked them to give up a seat occupied by their 2-year-old son and carry him on their laps for the duration of the flight. They tried to refuse and argued with airline staff, but say they were threatened with being sent to jail. "You have to give up the seat or...

The man, identified as Kima Hamilton by NBC News affiliate TMJ4, was a passenger aboard Delta Flight 2035 when the April 18 incident took place. Hamilton said he had an urgent need to use the bathroom, and after a 30-minute delay on the tarmac, ran to the back of the aircraft to use the restroom, according to...
