Flying To Minnesota, Piers Morgan Discovers Winter

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — TV personality Piers Morgan knows America’s Got Talent. Now he knows Minnesota’s got snow.

Morgan was flying from New York to Minneapolis on Delta to judge auditions for the talent show. He posted a message on Twitter that his flight turned back 50 minutes before it was supposed to land.

In response to a request to turn off electronic devices, he tweeted that he’d like the pilot to turn around and get him to Minneapolis. He also said it’s not true that Delta stands for “Don’t Ever Leave The Airport.” He wrote, “They leave, then come back again.”

As much as 8 inches of snow and high crosswinds caused delays at the Minneapolis airport on Wednesday. Delta Air Lines Inc. says it rebooked passengers on Morgan’s flight onto new flights.
