Generally speaking, Delta is about as good as it gets when it comes to flying in the U.S. That doesn’t mean Delta’s actually great or basically perfect. Heck, a lot of people don’t even realize its flight attendants aren’t unionized yet. Still, it could easily be so much worse. And yet, its planes still aren’t immune to the elements, as the crew and passengers on Flight 175 found out yesterday.
CNN reports that Flight 175 was approaching Atlanta after leaving Milan when it experienced “severe turbulence.” Not the kind of turbulence that’s just a little uncomfortable and might cause you to spill your drink. The kind that results in 11 crew members and passengers ending up in the hospital. Thankfully, the pilot was still able to land the plane safely.
