FAA investigating incident involving ND flight


GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - A spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Administration has confirmed an investigation into a flight heading from Grand Forks to Minneapolis that was cancelled Sunday after a flight attendant was taken off the job.

FAA spokeswoman Elizabeth Cory says the agency is investigating the cancellation of Delta Connection 3743. The flight was scheduled to depart shortly after 1 p.m. Sunday but was cancelled before taking off.

Pinnacle Airlines operated the flight.

Pinnacle spokesman Joe Williams said the flight attendant has been relieved of duties and is the focus of the investigation.

He would not say why the flight attendant was let go, saying it was an ongoing investigation. He said the pilot and copilot are not being investigated.

Williams says the 30 passengers were placed on later flights.
