Migos kicked off Delta flight from Atlanta to Des Moines

Major airline Delta looks like they played it safe after kicking Migos off one of their flights.

"Delta flight 1532 from Atlanta to Des Moines returned to the gate, prior to departure, to deplane several customers seated in the First Class cabin who repeatedly refused to follow crew member instructions to buckle their seatbelts and stow carry-on items in the overhead bins", Delta said in a statement to Variety.

Before they were removed, Takeoff's bag was on the ground, and the flight attendant asked the passengers to put it in the overhead compartment.

Like our fearless leader Danielle Belton, it seems as if a Delta flight attendant did not recognize the bubblin' rap trio and therefore didn't know that this would be bad bad bad (and so not boujee) for Delta's publicity. That's what a video posted on TMZ claims, though the airline says otherwise. In a show of solidarity, Quavo, Offset and their manager also left the plane.

The incident went down Friday on a flight scheduled from Atlanta to Des Moines.

His manager explains the plane continued to taxi to the runaway, but the pilot chose to remove them after finding out their bag was still on the floor. "You kicked us off a plane for doing absolutely nothing", the person recording says, adding that Migos will sue Delta.

According to Delta, and confirmed by a post by Migos, Delta rebooked the act, and they made their show, though they did arrive an hour late.

Their concert in Iowa was set for 10 p.m., while their flight was scheduled to land shortly after 9 p.m.
