Frontier Airlines flight 827 from Trenton, New Jersey to Charleston, South Carolina was delayed for an unusual reason. A passenger on board reports that “someone stole an exit sign” from the exit row so the plane couldn’t take off.

A police officer on board as a passenger volunteered to “sit at the door with [his] flashlight if [they] have to sky dive.” The airline didn’t take him up on this offer. Instead they eventually addressed the deficiency and departed six hours late.
I have reached out to Frontier Airlines for a statement and will update with any additional information they provide.
