Charter company's statement regarding WWE flight delay Submitted by Aaron Rift on 11/01/2019 at 05:59 PM
Atlas Air, the charter company used by WWE to get talents home from Saudi Arabia, issued a statement regarding the flight being delayed:
“A chartered WWE passenger flight operated by Atlas Air is currently delayed in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia due to a mechanical issue. The flight was scheduled to depart at 0300 local time on November 1. Our top priority is always to ensure our passengers arrive safely and on time at their destination. The aircraft is being repaired and will be inspected and certified before returning to service to transport our passengers to their final destination. We regret that operational disruptions delayed the flight and apologize to our passengers who were inconvenienced.”
Top talent including Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt already left Saudi Arabia on their own flights in an attempt to get back to the United States for Smackdown but won't make it in time.
