Passengers booted from flight over 'airplane mode' dispute

Five people thrown off flight for 'attitude' after row over phone airplane mode

A passenger says she was forced off of a Delta Connection flight at Fort Wayne International Airport after an argument with a flight attendant over whether or not her phone was turned to airport mode.

According to Rogers, the flight attendant stood over her "menacingly" after asking her to put her phone onto the right setting.

The flight attendant reportedly left after Rodgers placed her phone on airplane mode, and then returned to say that Rodgers was being removed from the plane.

All four adults and one child spend the night in IN at their own cost, because Delta wouldn't cover the expense of a hotel.

Robyn Rodgers, also known as DJ Reborn, posted to Instagram that she was "unfairly rejected" from Delta flight 4257 on Saturday after a female flight attendant asked her if her cellphone was in airplane mode. The attendant's response was indicative of the way the situation would escalate: "If you're gonna act like that we can go back to the gate and you can get off". The attendant, an employee of Skywest Airlines, a regional airline that Delta contracts with to operate flights to smaller cities, stood over her and watched her.

Keep in mind, the videos only show what happened after the flight attendant became upset.

In the video, you can hear the flight attendant saying the woman had been asked several times to do so. "You complied, other passengers vouched for you calmly, yet she wield her big stick across all of you".

Overnight, a SkyWest spokeswoman issued a statement that reads, "We take all allegations of discrimination seriously and are reviewing reports from SkyWest flight 4527 operating as Delta Connection".

"This is straight bully tactics on the flight attendant's part", one user wrote. "We are disappointed that our customers had this experience and are working with our partner Delta to follow up directly with the customers involved".

The man replied: 'We're just trying to go.' The video cut out but in the next post uploaded to her Instagram, Rogers and others had been forced off the plane.

A Delta Air Lines representative told WGCL-TV, Atlanta, that the airline accommodated the needs of stranded passengers.
