Flight stops to kick off 'unruly' couple

Jan. 16, 2012 at 3:00 PM

TAMPA, Fla., Jan. 16 (UPI) -- A Delta Atlanta-to-Costa Rica flight made an extra stop in Florida to drop off an "unruly" German couple who refused to sit down, an airport spokeswoman said.

Spokeswomen for Delta and Tampa International Airport said the two first-class passengers were forced to exit the plane in Tampa Sunday after they refused to sit and repeatedly demanded that the flight staff bring them champagne and food, the Tampa Bay (Fla.) Times reported Monday.

Airport spokeswoman Janet Zink said authorities did not file any charges against the "unruly" couple but the FBI was notified as a matter of routine.

Delta spokeswoman Chris Kelly Singley said Flight 413 continued on to Costa Rica after about an hour in Tampa.
