Delta: Flight diverted to Fla. for ‘unruly’ couple – Yahoo! News

English: "Fly Delta Air Lines" marker

ATLANTA AP — Officials say a Delta Air Lines flight from Atlanta to Costa Rica was diverted to Tampa, Fla., on Sunday evening after a couple from Germany became unruly.

Delta spokeswoman Chris Kelly Singley said Flight 414 departed Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport at 6 p.m. Sunday and landed at Tampa International Airport at 7:34 p.m. The captain made the call to land, the spokeswoman said. After the “unruly” passengers were removed, the plane went on to Costa Rica, she said.

Tampa International Airport spokeswoman Janet Zink identified the passengers as Peter and Gabriele Strohmaier of Dusseldorf, Germany. She said they were seated in first class and demanding food and champagne and refused to sit down.

Zink said no charges had been filled. The FBI and Transportation Security Administration were investigating.
