The latest standard for an emergency landing

A four year-old throwing a tantrum over apple juice.

I hope DL realizes how bad this makes them look.

I used to calculate the odds of my originally scheduled Delta Connection flight leaving the ground. Now it appears I might also have to factor in the odds of it remaining airborne all the way to its destination.

If you could find a way to turn the kid on & off, this would be useful insurance if you're ever faced with a 7-hours delay on the tarmac -- just wheel out the apple juice kid.

What stupidity on DL's part. At least the authorities have realized how stupid it would be to file charges against the kid or his parents.
