The airline says the actions of the crew members didn't reflect the professionalism expected of employees.

The Aviation Herald, a website that tracks accidents and other incidents involving planes, said Delta flight 2598 was headed from Los Angeles to Minneapolis on Jan. 22 when two flight attendants got into a fist fight and the captain decided to land in Salt Lake City.

The Herald said the plane stayed on the ground for more than an hour before resuming the flight to Minneapolis.

In a statement, Delta confirmed basics of the account. It said it sent a letter of apology to the plane's passengers.
