Passengers onboard a recent United Airlines flight got more than they bargained for after they encountered a drunk flight attendant who became belligerent on the plane.
The incident happened on Thursday onboard United Express flight 4689 operated by Trans States Airlines, headed from Denver to Williston, N.D. One passenger was able to notify the captain, and the flight was met by police upon arrival in North Dakota.
United has apologized to the customers onboard the flight and have offered a refund for their tickets as a form of compensation for this.
Safety announcement included ““If your seatbelt isn’t tight, you F****D UP”
Per the NY Post,
Authorities say a flight attendant accused of disrupting a flight from Denver to North Dakota was drunk.
Police in Williston, in northwestern North Dakota, say they received a call from airport officials before the Trans State Airlines flight landed Thursday afternoon that an occupant was intoxicated and had a medical condition. Police determined that the person was drunk and forwarded the investigation to the FBI.
United Airlines said it is refunding air fare for passengers “as a gesture of goodwill.”
