It Takes Time to Read Long Blog Entries!

I’m sure my last entry was laborious to read. This link will take you to a video record of some poor souls who found themselves waiting in a plane (pushed from the gate) for over 7 hours. All told it took them 10 hours to travel from JFW to DFW. That would be plenty of time to read long blog entries!

I think 7 hours takes the cake. The longest time I spent suffering that nasty trick was 3 hours. I’ve heard that the airline records/reports that as an on time departure. The plane is departed when it leaves the gate.

    We had a tie for that record. When leaving Scotland, we sat on the tarmac for 7 hours due to “technical difficulties” which included a reboot of the flight computer. Kinda gave me the willies. To top it off, they would not start serving snacks because of the policy that they had to wait until they were off the ground.

    I hate flying. Or rather, I hate flying the airlines. Makes me wish I was a pilot and had my own plane, but that ain’t happening.
