Delta was forced to accommodate the remaining passengers on alternate flights.
"Maintenance technicians have evaluated the aircraft and is scheduled to return to service this evening," Delta spokesperson Morgan Durrant told CNN.
The two passengers were later identified as Antonio Murdock, 31, and Brianna Greco, 23, both from Florida, according to the New York Times.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey confirmed that they were both caught and arrested; they both face charges of criminal trespass, while Murdock alone has also been charged with criminal mischief and reckless endangerment.
A witness aboard the flight, Brian Plummer, told the publication that the flight was not full, and that the pair had changed seat several times as they awaited take-off.
