Altercation Causes Flight Delay

Now, flight attendants and pilots are making the skies less friendly. The "New York Daily News" reports a Delta Air Lines flight being operated by Endeavor from LaGuardia Airport to Portland, Maine was delayed two hours Monday because of a confrontation between the pilot and a flight attendant just before takeoff.

No one is saying what set off the fracas, but the pair – who have not been identified – reportedly exchanged harsh words in the aisle and both accused the other of grabbing each other's arm "aggressively."

Neither was arrested by Port Authority officers, but both were ordered to stay behind. "Endeavor Air apologizes to the customers on board Endeavor Air flight 3925, operating as Delta Connection, from LaGuardia to Portland, Maine whose travel was inconvenienced as a result of a disagreement between two crew members," the company says in a statement. "The actions of these crew members, as described, in no way reflects the respect, values and professionalism we expect from our employees."
