Alaska Airline captain and first officer argument forces plane to return to gate.

An Alaska Airlines flight this week from Washington to San Francisco was delayed due to a spat between the two pilots.

After a delay of more than an hour and a half due to a storm, the plane made it onto the runway at Washington Dulles International Airport in Virginia, but turned around and returned to the gate instead of taking off.

From there, one of the pilots walked off the plane, announcing to passengers that it was due to “a failure to get along” and that he was exiting the aircraft in the “interest of safety,” according to travel website One Mile at a Time.
