So Jet Blue held their passengers hostage yesterday for 10 hours on the runway only to never take off. So, why didn’t someone just fake crazy, tear off their clothes, and force the airline to disembark the plane? Or have their three year old throw the mother of all trantrums? At the least you’d get yourself off the plan. I don’t understand why people would put up with that.
I was once stuck on a plane for 3 hours while they fixed something. They taxied us over to the hanger and we all went to sleep. They didn’t disembark us so that once it was fixed we could take off right away. We got a periodic update on how much longer we had to wait. And they were spot on. But that was Cathay Pacific. And not in the middle of a snow storm.
