Flight canceled after pilot yells obscenities

ROMULUS, Mich. (AP) - Northwest Airlines has apologized to 180 passengers for a pilot's outburst.

According to a federal official, the captain was yelling obscenities during a cell phone conversation while people were boarding a Las Vegas-to-Detroit flight and even cursed at one of them.

An F-A-A spokesman says the pilot was apparently in a heated cell phone conversation in the cockpit, then went into a lavatory, locked the door and continued the conversation.

The spokesman says Northwest removed the pilot from the aircraft and canceled the flight.

Northwest is investigating the incident. The airline says passengers were accommodated on other flights and were also given meals and hotels during any additional time in Las Vegas.
