MILWAUKEE, Dec 16 (Reuters) - A Delta Air Lines jet slipped off the runway while taxiing after landing in Madison, Wisconsin, on Monday afternoon in snowy conditions, authorities said. No injuries were reported.

The flight "exited the pavement and came in contact with snow adjacent to the runway during taxi away from the runway," Delta said in a statement.

Delta said passengers from flight 385, a Boeing Co 737-800, were being bused to the terminal and no injuries were reported.

The airplane had just landed at Dane County Regional Airport after a flight from Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport when the incident happened at about 4 p.m. (2200 GMT), authorities said.

The airplane's nose came to rest off the runway, but the rest of the airplane stayed on the runway, Madison Fire Department spokeswoman Lori Wirth said.

Fire emergency crews initially responded to the incident, but all have returned to their bases except for a single ambulance.

Glad everyone is okay.

Southwest is obnoxious at times, the other night while taking the runway at TPA my new FO put the landing lights on too early by mistake with SW on other side. I apoligized but they still felt the need to flash all there lights right before i took off nearly blinding me.

The real news story should be when Delta manages to stay on a prepared surface. That airline needs to put more value into safety.

SouthWest has many true professionals.

That said, there have more than their fair share of very childish people flying their aircraft.

I've been cut off many times when ground told SWA to follow me. I guess it works for them, because they are able to make flights on time.

However, if everyone behaved as they do, taxiways would become a demolition derby. It is the professionalism of other flight crews that keep things safe.

Very clever of those pilots to find a way to exploit the courtesy of others. I'm sure they feel very proud of themselves. Of course, pickpockets and burglars probably high-five each other when they make off with other people's belongings.

Birds of a feather, I suppose.
