Flight Attendant Fisticuffs Ground Plane Passengers cleared after brawl on NY-to-Atlanta flight By Harry Kimball, Newser Staff Posted Feb 26, 2010 11:44 AM CST 15 comments Comments A flight attendant, perhaps on a time out? (AP Photo) (Newser) – A flight from Rochester, NY, to Atlanta wasn’t even off the ground when a throwdown between two flight attendants scrapped the whole trip. The two women “got into a fistfight,” one passenger says. So “the pilot decided to kick everyone off the plane.” Pinnacle Airlines, which operated the flight, has suspended the employees pending an investigation. “The acts described are not acceptable,” a rep tells YNN Rochester.
