06/18/2004: ""

Was stuck on a runway for three hours last night, and panic almost broke loose. People get very weird when they've been been in an airplane too long, especially if it's one that's not moving. Every ten minutes or so, the pilot would gamely try to sugarcoat news of another hour-long delay. He started telling us stories. To amuse us, the flight attendants gave away some free tickets to the Mets-Tigers game. (Delta is the official airline of the Mets--it's amazing that they ever make it to their games on time.) Then they brought in some rather desperate-looking sandwiches, since it looked like none of us were going to get the chance to eat dinner. Purple grapes, little Toblerone chocolate bars that tasted frozen. When that ran out, they gave us pillows and blankets. Then bottled water. Then they ran out of bottled water and started giving people tomato juice instead. Then one of them found a bunch of bags of cheddar-cheese goldfish, which amused us for all of about five minutes. Then they finally started giving everyone complimentary beer and wine, which smoothed things over somewhat. Until the buzz wore off, and we were still on the runway. Just one more hour, came the apologetic voice over the intercom. Endless runway.

I had the exact opposite experience today; on my 36-minute flight from Houston to San Antonio, I literally had the flight attendant rip the beverage out of my hand and toss it into the trash bag. 10 minutes ascending / 10 minutes descending left ~15 minutes to serve the entire plane (full, ~150 person flight) their respective refreshments and collect the waste.

I was amused; I was handed a cup, I took two sips, and had it pulled from my hands while it was still saturated with caffinated-goodness. Bastards. I guess next time I shouldn't be so lazy and actually drive the 3 hours myself, in spite of my complete abhorrence of the over-sized trucks driven by self-important, red-neck preschoolers with shotguns and chrome cow-catchers which are so prevalent around these parts.

The only time I got stuck like that was at Logan (5 hours), and I got a free flight and a hotel/meal voucher out of that one (never did get to take off that day); admittedly, by that last hour, I was gingerly caressing my collection of miniature wine bottles, waiting for one more person to open their mouth and say anything at all. I feel your pain, Geeta.
