Delta pilot turns plane around to get grieving family to funeral across the country
PHOENIX -- A pilot is being hailed a good Samaritan for an act of kindness involving a family that missed their flight to Tennessee for their father's funeral. FOX 10 reports the pilot made an unprecedented decision after the plane had already pulled away from the gate. "I was just crying.. I couldn't believe we were going to miss that flight and we are very, very thankful for those pilots," Nicole Wibel told KSAZ.
