& # 39; People wondered why it took so long. The flight attendants didn't really make an announcement, & Amanda Goncalves told CBS 2.
& # 39; They just said they were practicing for their Halloween haunted house. They were joking.
& # 39; And then they said: & # 39; Get ready to take off & # 39 ;, and it could certainly have caused some fear. & # 39;
It appeared that the cause of the incident was the humidity, with an aviation expert who explained to CBS 2 that thick condensation can occur when air conditioning starts to cool a damp aircraft.

& # 39; When the air conditioning system is on and you have cold air that meets the temperature of the cabin, you start to get condensation, & # 39; Alan Yurman, a former investigator of the National Transportation Safety Board, air safety, told the news station.
He says that although it is not uncommon for a small amount of condensation, he has never seen such a thick fog fill an airplane.
Meanwhile, Delta says in the same way that the incident was caused by the Florida humidity.
As such, they are not required to submit a report to the Federal Aviation Authority.
The plane arrived safely at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York and the journey was completed without incident.
