A Delta Airlines Boeing 757-200, registration N751AT performing flight DL-2598 from Los Angeles,CA to Minneapolis,MN (USA), was enroute at FL370 about 180nm south of Salt Lake City,UT (USA) when the captain decided to divert the aircraft to Salt Lake City telling ATC he wanted to hear from his flight attendants. The aircraft landed safely on Salt Lake City's runway 16R about 40 minutes after leaving FL370.

A passenger reported that three cabin crew were sent off due to "bad behaviour". The airline subsequently sent a letter of apology stating: "... some of our team members did not display their best behavior. We expect our flight crew to be nothing but courteous and professional at all times and what you experienced was far from that. I am sorry we didn’t deliver on our brand promise for you today."

The aircraft remained on the ground for about 80 minutes, then continued the flight reaching Minneapolis with a delay of 75 minutes.

On Jan 28th 2016 The Aviation Herald learned that two flight attendants disagreeing over work issues engaged in a fist fight, a third lady trying to calm the other two down was hit by the flying fists, the purser informed the flight deck and the captain decided to divert.
