The New York Giants allegedly trashed a plane so badly that it caused a delay of more than three hours.
After the Packers beat the Giants 38-13 in a wildcard playoff game on Sunday, United Airlines and passengers reported that the team destroyed the interior of the plane taking them home from Green Bay, Wisconsin. The mess was so bad that it caused a delay of more than three hours for passengers waiting to get on the plane after the team got off.
“The pilot came out and asked for everyone’s patience, and shared where the plane came from and that the plane needed extra help repairing and cleaning the interior,” passenger Mark Kropf told the New York Post. “Another 30 minutes passed and the gate agent told us it was the Giants that destroyed the biz class cabin, and we saw service personnel walking countless seat cushions off the plane. Upon entering the business class cabin, the cleaning scent only partially masked the alcohol smell. I had popcorn, chewing tobacco and other food crumbs on my seat.”
Gordon Allott, another passenger on the plane, took to Twitter to reprimand the team.
“We are about 2.5 hours delayed. We were told the Giants had this plane last night and trashed it. Which is the cause of the delay,” he said in one tweet, followed by “The @Giants are poor losers. #UA934.”
Although, according to the passengers, the airline said the Giants trashed the plane, both a Giants spokesperson and a United Airlines spokesperson said it might not be true. The Giants spokesperson said it was outright false, though Unites Airlines only wouldn’t confirm if it was, in fact, the Giants on the plane, and said there was a mechanical issue causing the delay.
