Feb 19th 2010 5:24PM This same thing happened to me years ago on a Delta flight to NYC. A bad storm rolled in, we circled JFK for a while, but began to run out of fuel, so they diverted us to Baltimore. We were told to deplane while they refueled and we would be back in the air shortly. After several hours, they told us they were cancelling the flight for the night. We could get on another flight at "some point" the next day... if we were willing to go stand by. Several people hopped on a train but I was literally stranded in a strange town (well, to me, anyway). No compensation... not even a hotel room for the night. What was supposed to be an up-and-back-in-one-day trip ended up being a three day trip. Thanks Delta.
Feb 6th 2009 5:16PM A lot of people don't realize Coach Summit has been in the history books of basketball before. She was one of the women who testified in front of a Congressional Committee DECADES AGO in order to get women's basketball moved from half court to full court games (and you thought the congressional hearings they have NOW are silly). I used to work in local TV in Knoxville and always found Coach Summit to be one of the kindest, most accessible people we ever worked with. She is the very definition of a woman and a lady.
Congrats Pat - you deserve it!
Jun 6th 2008 9:22AM I was recently on a flight and had NO headphones on. I was having a pleasant conversation with my row neighbor and the FA with the drink cart totally passed me! When I turned to my neighbor and said "Did we get skipped?" I got a VERY snappy reply from the FA that said "Your tray table wasn't down so I figured you didn't want anything." I got my drink... but she wasn't happy about giving it to me. I have been on a LOT of flights and never heard that the tray HAD to be down to signal that I wanted a drink. With long legs... I would rather just hold the drink than put the table down. Heather? Is this a normal thing for FA's to require?
