Delta flight attendant pulled off flight from Buffalo

A Delta Airlines Flight attendant was removed from a flight Wednesday morning at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport.  

The Transportation Security Administration says one of its officers at a security checkpoint stated they felt uncomfortable with the actions of one of the male flight attendants.  But the TSA said it was not a security issue.  

Delta issued a statement saying it was notified this morning that a flight attendant appeared to be "unfit for duty". 

Delta said it takes the allegations very seriously and that they were working to confirm whether the allegation is accurate. 

As a precaution, the flight attendant was removed from flying on Delta Flight 1266.  The Buffalo to Atlanta flight was delayed during the removal.
