Delta Bans Passenger for Life After Pro-Donald Trump Rant on Flight

1 minute read

Delta Airlines has banned a passenger for life after he shouted at others in support of President-elect Donald Trump in an expletive-filled rant on a flight.

“The individual displayed behavior that was loud, rude and disrespectful to his fellow customers,” Delta Chief Executive Officer Ed Bastian said in a note to employees. “He will never again be allowed on a Delta plane.”

A video posted Tuesday showed the passenger yelling at others on Flight 248, traveling to Allentown, Pa. from Atlanta.

“Donald Trump, baby,” the man yelled at other passengers on the plane, according to video footage posted on Facebook. “We got some Hillary b—-es on here? Come on, baby. Trump!”

The airline issued an apology on Saturday for the incident, and said the man “should not have been allowed to continue on the flight.”
