Passenger Fight Delays Flight at New York’s LaGuardia Airport

A fight between two young women delayed the departure of a Delta flight from New York’s LaGuardia Airport on August 30, another passenger, Destiny Davis, said.

Davis shot video of the two passengers grappling with each other in the corridor at her departure gate. Off-screen, someone can be heard saying, “Come get Aaliyah, she’s fighting,” before a woman and a man approach the pair.

Davis told Storyful she figured the two were related, “either cousins or sisters”.

“Once they started to fight, there was little intervention and the police took a while to show up to our gate,” Davis said. “They led them out in a peaceful manner but the plane was delayed by almost 30-40 minutes and we had to wait for them to find the luggage of the two passengers before leaving.” Credit: Destiny Davis via Storyful
