This was posted on Nov 22 after a flight delay in Toronto's airport. Lady Hillary suggests that all airlines should have musicians on staff to deal with this sort of situation. It shouldn't only be a bunch of Newfies responding to a crisis.

Anyone know these guys?

It's that Irish heritage. And the delay was only 30 minutes.

I can remember maybe 20 years ago at East Midlands airport UK there was a delay of some considerable hours and in that time they had managed to commission Bill Tidy to entertain, talking to people and drawing. He had a delivery verbally that just oozed friendliness. AFAIK he lived in Blackpool, at least 2 hours away.

Those who don't know, Bill Tidy was a cartoonist extraordinaire. He did jokes and had a series in the New Scientist. Apart from being exquisitely funny without a hint of malice, he had a way of depicting Morris dancers that could only come from affection and probably a lot of time spent with a side or two.

One of his notable cartoons in Punch was a polar bear at the shipping office saying "have you got any news of the iceberg" - the inspiration for Les Barker's poem/song of that name.

I'll bet these folks could have gone on for longer than 30 minutes if the need arose!

We had a 7 hour delay at Quito international airport in 2005 and were treated to an amazing spread of food, which was constantly being restocked by wonderful Ecuadorian Indian ladies!!!!! I also remember that a Celine Dion gig was playing on the TV system over and over.
