It seems everyone's "erratic behavior" antenna is up these days: A Delta flight attendant was pulled from a Buffalo-to-Atlanta flight after a TSA agent observed, you guessed it, erratic behavior, and was worried he wasn't fit to work the 6:15am flight. The questionable actions haven't been detailed, but a Delta rep told the Buffalo News that "we take allegations very seriously and we are working to confirm the accuracy."

And while the flight's passengers may have been saved from a crazy display, they certainly didn't have a headache-free trip: Delta had to fly in another attendant to replace him, leading to a three-hour delay. Of course, that's better than many people trying to get in and out of Dallas have it; post-tornado cancelations will affect an estimated 30,000 people today, reports the AP.
