An argument between two female flight attendants forced the cancellation of an Atlanta-bound flight at an airport in upstate New York.
A Pinnacle Airlines spokesman in Memphis, Joe Williams, says the spat erupted just as Delta Connection Flight 887 returned to the gate Thursday morning after a passenger became ill.
Passenger Corey Minton tells cable news station YNN in Rochester he and others aboard were told they had to "get off the plane because stewardesses were fighting."
Williams says there was no physical contact and doesn't know the reason for what he termed a "verbal disagreement."
The women were removed from duty pending an airline investigation.
Williams says Delta found alternate travel plans for passengers.
