More than 300 passengers were delayed after the pilot refused to fly in a situation reminiscent of the film Snakes on a Plane.

More than 300 ? Something isn't right here.....

Perhaps they were counting the delay to passengers on the return flight as well?

And he even quotes the Sun, one of England's leading tabloids.

Not that it changes your point at all, but it was The Telegraph. At least they try to be less like a tabloid than The Sun!

What a ridiculous story!



None shall pass!!!!

It sounds like the Telegraph got the story from the Sun,

"Andy Picken, 47, who had been to the US with his wife Jenny to celebrate her 40th birthday, told the Sun he had to wait three hours for a substitute plane to arrive at midnight."

The flight actually departed at midnight and the plane is still here in JFK undergoing a service check.
