Trump Activist Leo Terrell Reports On Delta Flight Diversion Over Unruly Passenger

Attorney and radio host Leo Terrell, who endorsed President Trump and was in Atlanta speaking at a rally for Senator Kelly Loeffler, took to twitter to share that Delta flight 335 from Atlanta to Los Angeles on Wednesday afternoon was forced to turn back to Atlanta.

Delta sent the flight back to eject one passenger on the flight. While getting off the plane he stopped to say hello to Terrell, who was filming.

The Airbus A321 only made it out over Alabama before turning around and heading back to Atlanta to offload an unruly passenger.


A spokesperson for Delta Air Lines offers,

Delta flight 335 returned to Atlanta due to an onboard customer disruption. The customer deplaned and the flight is scheduled to depart this evening. We apologize to our customers for any inconvenience this may have caused to their travel plans.

Thanksgiving aside, Delta doesn’t tend to cancel flights. So while there were other ways for some of the 91 passengers on this flight to get to Los Angeles earlier, the original flight is still traveling this evening onto Los Angeles – sans the disruptive passenger.

  1. “While getting off the plane he stopped to say hello to Terrell, who was filming.”

    Thought this would be a euphemism for colorful language but it’s literally a casual hello.

    Also the radio host should not have recoded a selfie monologue especially not with his mask off in the cabin

  2. Can you get any more details about the nature of the “nut,” and what if anything DL or ATL did with or about the “nut,’ once the bird got back to ATL?

  3. @Boston Meanwhile, are these nuts warm? As in, should someone point an IR thermometer at their foreheads?

  4. Seems like the only point of this article was to bring up some Trump supporter. Not even sure the point of this article since it provides almost no information.

  5. What was the point of this headline, intro, or even the entire article? Couldn’t resist bringing Trump into the picture?
