Delta reportedly paid passengers $10K to leave oversold flight

Delta Air Lines reportedly offered passengers $10,000 to get off an overbooked flight from Michigan to Minnesota, passengers claimed.

The airline was said to have offered the money to each passenger

who volunteered to disembark the aircraft Monday morning.

Inc. magazine tech columnist Jason Aten wrote that he was on the flight with his family

when a flight attendant asked for volunteers over the intercom.

Aten said the airline was seeking eight volunteers to offer their seats on the oversold flight

and that each volunteer would be given $10,000.

"If you have Apple Pay, you’ll even have the money right now," the flight attendant said
