The captain of a commercial plane decided to make an emergency landing after several flight attendants were unruly in front of passengers.

The Delta Air Lines flight number DL-2598 from Los Angeles, California, to Minneapolis, Minnesota was diverted to Salt Lake City, Utah as a result of the fist fight among the female flight attendants.

The plane landed safely in Salt Lake City.

The plane remained on the ground for about 80 minutes, before it continued to Minneapolis, where it arrived 75 minutes late.

Passengers aboard the plane said that they witnessed three cabin crew members engaging in a fist fight. They were expelled due to bad behavior.

The airline apologized for the incident. The fight broke out after two flight attendants disagreed about their work responsibilities and the argument turned violent.

A third flight attendant tried to calm them down, but was hit by flying fists.

The fight was reported to the captain of the plane, and he decided to make an emergency landing and expel the flight attendants.

There were 300 passengers on the plane.
