Delta spokesman Adrian Gee apologised to customers in a statement on Monday.
“Delta apologizes to our customers on board Flight 420 for delaying their travel,” Gee said.
“We are working to get customers to their destination as soon as possible,” Gee added that day.

Yvonne Nelson who arrived in Accra on Wednesday morning shared videos and photos she took of the incident, as well as a video of US news report of the incident on Instagram and was full of thanks to God for saving them.
“My flight! So this happened to us. Thank you Jesus. #Deltapleasesitup,” she said underneath her post.
