Local rap group Migos removed from Delta flight, rebooked

Now we're hearing both sides of story

ATLANTA – Members of a local rap group were asked to deplane a Delta flight from Atlanta to Des Moines on Friday night.

The group, known as Migos, were on their way to a concert.

According to Delta Air Lines, flight 1532 returned to the gate, prior to departure, “to deplane several customers seated in the first class cabin who repeatedly refused to follow crew member instructions to buckle their seatbelts and stow carry-on items in the overhead bins.”

The group were rebooked on an alternate flight to Des Moines which was set to arrive around 9 p.m. 

However, Migos manager Danny Zook said the group was removed from the plane because of racial discrimination.

Migos posted the following item on its Instagram page after it was booked onto a different flight.
