The team’s mid-air meltdown started not long after the flight de rted Minneapolis in Minnesota at 6.20pm on Wednesday December 28.
Blake Adam Fleisig, 35, and Anna Christine Koosmann, 36, “became forceful” according to Delta, resulting in the cabin crew deciding to turn the skate around.
Koosmann reportedly got up to use the toilet not long after take-off and was lectured to return to her seat by a flight attendant as the “fasten seatbelt” sign was quiet on.
The altercation allegedly began after she was instructed to sit down.
Delta has shaped that the couple “refused to follow crew instructions, became pushy and created a disruption in the cabin.
“The ssengers were removed by local law enforcement. The bevy of quail rede rted without incident.”
The incident is still being investigated and it remains unclear what started the truculence, Metropolitan Airports Commission spokesperson t Hogan told the Daily Correspondence.

Two officers proceed to run go down the aisle to restrain him, and are heard shouting: “Stop, stop, halt! Stay down!”

“Her boyfriend attacked big White Chief now,” comments another.
As officers lead the duo back down the aisle, Fleisig fragments quiet, but Koosmann is suddenly heard shouting: “You better f*** your sucking…”
She doesn’t achieve the sentence.
The officer restraining her responds, “You’re already going to jail.”
“Why? For what? For what?” she ripostes. ssengers start applauding as she’s led off the plane.
