ORLANDO, Fla. – Many questions linger Monday after a woman boarded a Delta flight at Orlando International Airport without a ticket and was removed from the plane.

The airline apologized for the three-hour delay Sunday on its Orlando-Atlanta flight.

Delta employees asked for the woman’s ticket because she was in someone else’s seat. Orlando police Lt. Wanda Miglio said the woman said she threw her ticket away and didn’t have identification.

The woman was taken off the plane, and officials re-screened all passengers.
