How scared would you be if your flight dropped mid-flight and the oxygen masks came down?

That’s what happened to folks making their way on a Delta flight from Atlanta to Fort Lauderdale. The plane dropped and then so did the oxygen masks.

Delta released a statement:

“We apologize to our customers o flight 2353 from Atlanta to Fort Lauderdale, which diverted to Tampa out of an abundance of caution and landed without incident following a cabin pressurization irregularity en route.”

If I was a passenger on that plane, after the safe landing in Tampa, I might be saying, “No need to book me on a connection to Fort Lauderdale. I’ll make the 4 hour drive.”
