Flight delayed due to confused passengers trying to check bags


Two confused passengers caused a delay for a Delta flight to San Jose after wandering onto the tarmac at McCarran International Airport.

The passengers attempted to gate check their bags, but misunderstood the directions and exited the jetway, according to Melissa Munnery, McCarran International Airport.

Officers with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department responded as a precaution. After interviewing the passengers, they were allowed back on the plane, Munnery said.

The flight was delayed about 30 to 45 minutes and has since departed for San Jose.
