Thread Name: BS: Airline Nightmare.
Subject: Airline Nightmare.
Just arrived in NYC at LaGuardia Airport. My Delta flight was cancelled and I was put on American. Which took off a half hour late. Not a problem. We arrived at LGA at 8:10PM and sat on the tarmac until 11:05!!!!! There were no gates free.
For entertainment we were treated to an extra individually wrapped mint and the sight of a mass arrest. It seems the passengers on the plane behind us had enough and mutinied. The doors opened; they disembarked in the middle of nowhere and were picked up by a fleet of security cars and ambulances.
Be forewarned: DO NOT FLY INTO LAGUARDIA AIRPORT UNLESS YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT!!!
And some sick humor - someone rented an entire wall as you pass through LaGuardia security and used it to post a sign recommending that you post all your complaints on-line.
