The aviation industry is shocked to hear the recent news concerning poor quality food served on this flight from Detroit to Amsterdam. With 277 passengers on board, the aircraft departed from the Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport on Tuesday. According to a report by the New York Post, the Delta flight was forced for an emergency landing at the John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.

But what triggered the major chaos leading to a surprising emergency landing of the Airbus A330 on Wednesday? As per multiple reports, many passengers on that plane from Detroit to Amsterdam received spoiled meals. An airline spokesperson stated that a section of the main cabin in-flight food service was spoiled. Passengers started to feel disgusting and sick after getting the horrible-quality served meals.

As of now, there are no confirmed updates on how many passengers consumed the meals served on the Delta Airlines flight. After the flight was diverted, emergency medical assistance was provided to the onboard passengers. The New York City Fire Department stated that the concerned teams provided medical help to 12 flyers.
