Mystery Woman Sneaks Onto Delta Flight With No I.D. & No Plane Ticket

A passenger traveling on a Delta flight from Orlando to Atlanta arrived at her seat to discover another woman was already sitting in it. She told the woman the seat was hers, but the woman refused to move. Upon getting the flight attendant involved, it turned into a series of events that caused a 3-hour delay.

Why? Because the woman who refused to move not only had no appropriate I.D., but she also had no travel documents that said she had a seat on that, or any other plane.

I Wanted A Reliable Airline So I Booked With Frontier Instead Of American

This is a headline that I never thought I’d write but here we are. I needed to choose a flight to get from Orlando to Austin. There used to be several non-stop flights between the two cities but airline schedules change and I was left with a set of options that would not have been my first choices. When you need to get from point A to point B, it becomes necessary to choose from the options you have.
