Delta Airlines: Spoilt food forces Delta flight to make emergency landing


A Netherlands-bound Delta flight made an emergency landing in New York after it was detected that the passengers were served contaminated food. The plane flew from Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport and diverted to JFK when it was flying over Saint Pierre and Miquelon. The Airbus A330 landed safely at JFK at 4am this morning (3 July) and was met by medics to treat affected passengers, reports said.
The airline has not yet revealed the details of how the contamination was detected and how many of the 277 passengers consumed the meal and whether they showed any symptoms of food poisoning.
“@delta I need to know how you’re going to get me to Amsterdam today – I’m on the plane that’s emergency landing at JFK because you served passengers “contaminated” food – I don’t need hotel/food vouchers I need to arrive in Amsterdam today,” an aggrieved passenger wrote.
Delta Airlines issued a statement confirming the incident and said: “Delta flight 136 from Detroit to Amsterdam diverted to New York’s JFK early Wednesday morning after reports that a portion of the Main Cabin in-flight meal service were spoiled. Medical crews met the aircraft to treat any affected passengers and crew members. Delta’s Food Safety team has engaged our suppliers to immediately isolate the product and launch a thorough investigation into the incident. This is not the service Delta is known for, and we sincerely apologize to our customers for the inconvenience and delay in their travels.”
