A Delta Air­lines flight from Detroit to Ams­ter­dam was forced to make an emer­gency land­ing at John F. Kennedy Inter­na­tion­al Air­port in New York City on July 3rd, 2024 after pas­sen­gers were served con­t­a­m­i­nat­ed food. 

Flight 136 depart­ed from Detroit Met­ro­pol­i­tan Wayne Coun­ty Air­port around 11pm on July 2nd car­ry­ing 277 pas­sen­gers. How­ev­er, short­ly into the flight atten­dants dis­cov­ered that a por­tion of the in-flight meal ser­vice was spoiled. 

Out of an abun­dance of cau­tion, they imme­di­ate­ly con­tact­ed med­ical experts on the ground who advised divert­ing the plane to the clos­est major air­port, which was JFK. 

The flight land­ed safe­ly around 4am with med­ical per­son­nel meet­ing the air­craft upon arrival to exam­ine pas­sen­gers in case any­one had eat­en the con­t­a­m­i­nat­ed food and got sick. It’s unclear exact­ly how many, if any, fell ill. 

The flight was sched­uled to land in Ams­ter­dam around 4:15am local time but had to be divert­ed from its transat­lantic jour­ney due to the food issue. 

Details on the nature of the con­t­a­m­i­nat­ed food have not been released. Pas­sen­gers will like­ly be put on anoth­er flight to com­plete their journey.
