Passengers kicked off plane over dispute about cellphone's airplane mode

A Delta Air Lines passenger flying out of Fort Wayne International Airport says she was unfairly removed from a flight on Saturday. In a post on Instagram, Robyn Rodgers of New York said she was "unfairly ejected" from Delta Flight 4527 after an attendant asked her to turn her phone on airplane mode. The flight was operated by SkyWest Airlines, a regional airline that Delta contracts with to operate flights to smaller cities. Passengers often are not aware of the distinction because the flights are part of itineraries on Delta's reservation system.
