There’s 7 ppl who are going to miss their connection to Australia and are righteously pissed.
This is the craziest thing I’ve ever seen and I fly a hell of a lot.
At what point does he find it believable?
C’mon not their fault. It was a weather delay and then the dominoes just started falling.
Connection officially missed and bag still under the plane.
Upside. Free to hit the bar!
A snap support group of strangers has formed to my right and they are offering each other folksy platitudes for comfort.
I’m not sure I understand but everyone seemed to nod in concurrence.
One has been assigned to eavesdrop on them. Our infiltrator reports another 90 minute delay due to maintenance.
Weather, maintenance, flight crew change, and passenger issues. It’s like some mystical flight-delay bingo and we hit every square
The support group has dissipated. We may have hit bottom. Gloom and despair have swept through the crowd.
They say it’s darkest before dawn.
I don’t know how to finish that thought.
One person set off an explosive chain of events, the impact of which will ripple throughout history.
This seems to be a problem. Some folks have canceled their plans, some routing through different cities.
This will take 2 hours minimum. The mind is willing but the body is weak.
When he found out it’s another 2 hours on top of the now 7 hour delay, poor dude broke down and cried.
But they reiterate the two hour minimum before @americanair can open the plane and get the bag.
I think the person just wants to be sleeping with their CPAP right now.
“If the bags aren’t off by 1:18, the bags go to Dallas.”
But a serious question about whether it’s worth the FBI arrest to save them from being sent to Dallas.
friend: you were in the Air Force
Your resilience will serve you well in your new career, my dude.
I am teaching them what I remember of drill and ceremony and will graduate them to squad infantry tactics if events dictate.
“2 hr wait or bag goes to final destination”
But we were given a 1:18am ultimatum!
He checked in with desk again and said he was told “it’s just as much of an inconvenience for us.”
Thought this would spur the group to violence but they seem too tired to be provoked.
Fatigue deters indignation, it seems.
“One person did this! ONE person!”
But I am convinced that we’re being watched in some sort of cosmic stress experiment, and cannot assign blame.
Imagine being a kid. It’s Christmas morning. You spring down the stairs and sprint to your living room and excitedly look beneath the tree. Only to find it barren
Not our bags. Our journey endures
Prove me wrong.
I was once happy.
“Be real with us. Those bags are going to Dallas aren’t they.”
Our bags are back there on the plane? (yes)
But you can’t get them? (no)
But there are other bags coming off other planes? (yes)
But not ours? (no)
Can you get them? (no)
But there are other bags being unloaded? (yes)
Just not ours? (right)
Defeated but not broken, I head for home while my bag gets all an expense paid trip to Texas.
And some blaming the person who wanted to get off 6 minutes from takeoff. I have no idea why they needed off that plane so I can’t judge them for it.
All in, I’ve got it pretty good i think. So I’m grateful some annoying travel issues are the worst of my problems.
I’m not going to try to fleece @americanair over it. I wouldn’t hate seeing my bag again though.
