Delta Airlines flight from the US to the Netherlands forced to make emergency landing due to spoiled food served to passengers

Delta Flight 136 Diverted to New York JFK After Spoiled Meal Service, Passengers Affected

Delta Airlines flight 136 from Detroit to Amsterdam made an unexpected stop at New York’s JFK airport after reports surfaced that a portion of the Main Cabin in-flight meal service was spoiled. The airline confirmed that medical personnel greeted passengers upon arrival to address any potential health concerns.

A Delta Airlines spokesperson stated, “Delta teams will immediately work to gather information into how this incident occurred. This is not the service Delta is known for, and we sincerely apologize to our customers for the inconvenience and delay in their travels.”

According to ABC7, the flight had 277 passengers on board, and it is unclear how many individuals consumed the spoiled food or exhibited signs of possible food poisoning. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey reported that 24 individuals, including 10 flight crew members and 14 passengers, received medical attention after landing.

Passengers were provided with hotel accommodations and transportation while waiting to be rebooked for their continued journey. Amidst the chaos, passenger Virginia took to social media to express her frustration at the delay in reaching her destination of Amsterdam.

This incident is not the first time Delta Airlines has had to divert an international flight due to health concerns. In a previous event in September 2023, a flight bound for Barcelona was redirected back to Atlanta after a passenger experienced a “biohazard issue” involving diarrhoea.

As Delta Airlines investigates the cause of the spoiled food onboard flight 136, passengers and crew members can rest assured that their safety and well-being remain a top priority for the airline.
