Delta Drops $500 Fine for Branded Apple

Delta Air Lines has agreed to waive the $500 fee they charged passenger Crystal Tadlock for carrying an apple, which she was given by the carrier as an in-flight snack during her returning flight from France and which was wrapped in plastic bearing the Delta Air Lines logo. Her Global Entry benefits had also been revoked.

The carrier agreed to drop the fine and revocation of privileges after Tadlock contacted her Congressman, Ed Perlumutter, who said “It didn’t sound right. It sounded excessive. I found myself kind of offended that there would be a $500 fine for an apple wrapped in plastic from Delta.”
