On a recent Delta Air Lines trip from Syracuse to Atlanta, something strange supposedly happened when a woman allegedly started nursing a cat, much to the surprise of other passengers and the staff.
While the aircraft was in the air, a flight attendant sent a message to the ground crew using the Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS) to inform them that the passenger in seat 13A was “breastfeeding a cat and will not put cat back in its carrier when [flight attendant] requested.”
The ACARS message also requested that the woman be met upon arrival in Atlanta by a member of Delta’s “Red Coat” team, a special crew the airline refers to as “customer service professionals.”
Flight attendants distribute Fox News magazines According to Trace Gallagher, the flight attendant then posted further information about the event on social media, recalling, “One of those, like, hairless cats was wrapped in a blanket by the woman and made to resemble a baby. She was attempting to latch the cat while her shirt was up, but she wouldn’t put the animal back in the carrier.”
“The cat was crying for its life,” the flight attendant said.
It’s unclear if the Red Coat crew approached the woman after the alleged incident was reported on a flight on Nov. 13. A request for comment from FOX Business was not answered by Delta Air Lines.
