Delta Flight Forced To Land WHY?

( – In another puzzling incident putting aircraft companies to shame, a Delta Airlines flight headed to Amsterdam had to make an emergency landing at JFK because passengers were served “contaminated food.”

According to a report, Delta Flight 136 took off from Detroit, Michigan, but had to be turned back to New York’s JFK after the in-flight meals were found to be spoiled.

A Delta Airlines spokesperson said, “Delta flight 136 from Detroit to Amsterdam diverted to New York’s JFK early Wednesday morning after it was discovered that a portion of the in-flight meal service was spoiled.”

Moreover, flight attendants contacted medical experts on the ground, leading to the plane’s immediate diversion to JFK just as it was about to start its transatlantic journey.

The flight landed safely at the airport around 4 a.m. on Wednesday.

Upon arrival, medical personnel assisted the Delta flight passengers at the New York City airport.

“There were 24 aided cases upon landing, including 10 members of the flight crew and 14 passengers, all of whom declined to receive medical attention. Passengers were provided with hotel rooms and transportation and will be rebooked to continue to their destination,” the spokesperson added.

One frustrated passenger wrote on X, “@Delta I need to know how you’re going to get me to Amsterdam today – I’m on the plane that’s emergency landing at JFK because you served passengers ‘contaminated’ food – I don’t need hotel/food vouchers I need to arrive in Amsterdam today.”

Additionally, the flight had left Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport just before 11 p.m. on Tuesday, with 277 passengers onboard, and was scheduled to land in the Netherlands at 4:15 a.m. local time on July 4.

At the moment, it is still unclear how many passengers or crew members, if any, fell ill due to the spoiled food.
