I've experienced this in DEN as well on a UA A320 (I even had a deep sleep, only to wake up and find out we still had another 20 min to depart!) Jeez, are'nt there 6 runways there now?
My longest (as a pax) was in JFK way back in 1982 on a US air DC-9-14, where the pilot told us we were eleventh in line. Recently on a UA 767 in SFO we took about an hour to taxi, wait and finally depart from 01L.
