Emergency Landing of a Delta Flight for an Unprecedented Reason

A Delta flight originating from Detroit made an emergency landing at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York, causing significant disruption and leaving hundreds of passengers stranded. The flight was en route to Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands.

According to details published by the British newspaper “Daily Mail”. A Delta Airlines flight made an emergency landing in New York after spoiled meals were discovered on board, raising fears of contamination.

The newspaper reported that passengers on the transatlantic flight were served “contaminated food.”

The airline spokesman said the plane was diverted to a major US airport in the early hours of Wednesday morning after spoiled food was discovered on board.

It is not known how many passengers ate the food, but ambulances were waiting on the tarmac when the plane landed at JFK to provide any emergency care.

The company announced that it had begun an investigation into the incident and apologized to customers.

Delta Flight 136, an Airbus A330, was carrying 277 passengers when it departed Detroit, Michigan, just before 11 p.m. Tuesday, the newspaper reported.

The crew consulted medical experts before deciding to make the unexpected landing.

A company spokesman announced that Delta Flight 136, traveling from Detroit to Amsterdam, was diverted to New York’s JFK Airport early Wednesday morning due to reported damage to the in-flight meal service in the main cabin.

Medical crews gathered on the plane to treat any affected passengers and crew.

“Delta’s food safety team has engaged our suppliers to immediately isolate the product and begin a full investigation into the incident,” the airline added. “This is not the service Delta is known for and we sincerely apologize to our customers for the inconvenience and delay to their flights.”
