De ja Vu

Unbelievable. My outbound flight from PHL was delayed not one, not two, but EIGHT hours on my way to Belgium two weeks ago. We were supposed to take off at 8 PM, but never did until 4 in the morning!

Now it's two hours after our original departure time out of D.C., and back to San Francisco. And what happens? Nothing. We've been simply sitting here, in the plane, waiting.

Finally, another two-hour delay before the takeoff. What's going on with US Airways and United?

On a separate note, JetBlue had a very minor delay on one of my trips a few months ago. They promptly emailed me a $25 voucher within days. What a pleasant surprise!

Were you stuck on the tarmac (sp?) for EIGHT HOURS??? THAT is an outrage, if it's true! Just outrageous.

What's the tarmac? We were stuck at the airport (PHL) for 8 hours, until the wee hours in the morning. Had to camp out and sleep on the floor or the in the very uncomfortable seats. Just hateful!
