Delta has really been in it with the jet fuel.
So this happened…
A sports team (The Rutgers Scarlett Knights, the baseball team for Rutgers University) reported that their bags had been sprayed by jet fuel on their flight to JFK. The team has filed a complaint with Delta following the incident.
The team witnessed the ground crew accidentally spraying their bags as they were boarding into the A220 on route to JFK. The team soon arrived in JFK, however, their bags did not arrive with them. They still await their bags from Delta after cleaning.
Simple Flying reached out to Delta for comment on what happened in Salt Lake City.
The airline replied with the following statement:
“We apologize for the inconvenience to our customers on Flight 935 from Salt Lake City to New York – JFK who were delayed by damaged baggage during the transfer process.”
This is very much weird as this is very rare to happen. Delta is currently investigating what went down with the ground crew. No further details really exist.
However, the team postponed their game until the equipment arrives.
