'Chaotic' brawl breaks out on Delta flight after passengers are delayed for 8 hours
Nobody likes being on a plane for long periods of time. They're cramped, loud, and are essentially a giant tube of farts. But the saving grace of any long plane journey is that you'll eventually arrive at your chosen destination.
However, after a planeful of passengers were stranded on for nearly eight hours at the Queens airport on Thursday, their frustrations boiled over and some travelers became involved in an "out of control" brawl.
The flight in question was Delta Flight 2385, the Fox 5 News reports, flying from JFK to Miami, but after being stuck on the tarmac for nearly eight hours, exhausted and angry passengers became violent and began sparring one another.
Local news anchor, Glenna Milberg, from Florida was on the plane and shared a video to social media that showed the chaos as Port Authority Police boarded the plane.
Check out Milberg's shocking video below. This really is a flight from hell:
Another passenger who witnessed the "chaos" was Juan Andres Ahmad, who wrote on Twitter:
"This has gotten out of control — there are people fighting each other and it’s gotten both verbal and physical. Police are on the plane! Complete chaos!
"I understand weather delays and we all want to be safe but this is not about weather but about how Delta has handled it."
In another tweet, Ahmad relayed how the plane's captain had "'no idea' where the ship's crew was."

The plane was scheduled to take off from the Queens airport on Thursday at 3:52 pm, but due to poor weather conditions, the plane did not take off until around 11:00 pm. Per the report, the plane did eventually land in Miami at 2:30 am.
Port Authority police restored calm and confirmed that no arrests were made.
Delta did tweet their apologies to Mr Ahmed:
The incident was the second mishap for Delta in recent days. A day earlier passengers on JFK-bound Delta Flight 100 had a scare when their plane filled with a foglike mist. The plane was waiting to depart Jacksonville when the mist invaded — and the flight crew made a joke out of it.
That flight went on to land in New York without incident.
A Delta spokesperson told Fox News that “during hot and humid conditions, it’s not uncommon to see brief periods of condensation fog in the cabin.”
