The flight finally was canceled after 8 p.m.

I'm sure that didn't help the situation...

A law-enforcement source told The Post that the flight was canceled because the plane did not have the required number of flight attendants, after Serrano was removed for questioning.

That makes sense. Not exactly fair to the customers, but at least it's a reason.

But American Eagle claimed the cancellation was due to strong rain.

That does not make sense

The airline, as a matter of policy, refuses to reimburse passengers for hotel expenses if their flight is rescheduled or canceled due to weather.

Ahhhhh now it makes perfect sense! Fark you American Eagle. You're employee screwed the customer, and then you decided to drill a little deeper. And your clothing line sucks.

4 p.m. - After being delayed due to rain, passengers finally board the plane and head to runway - where they get stuck behind about 20 planes waiting to take off.

4:40 p.m. - Pilot turns plane around to refuel. All passengers leave the aircraft.


Why would the plane have to refuel after 40 minutes of waiting in line to take-off? I wouldn't think that edging down the runway would burn that much fuel.

This is a guy who is supposed to stay cool when when a plane crash lands and get the doors open. And he crys because passengers speak harshly to him?

He's in the wrong job.

I for one am not amused. That asshole should've been arrested.

Most of the time I hate the biatchy sky waitresses while pretending to be respectful. It shouldn't be my problem that they hate their lives. Just STFU and get me another drink.

Even at ground idle, jet engines burn a bunch of fuel.

Dispatch should have put on more fuel knowing that it was a typical LGA weather delay day, but on a regional jet, they might have been weight limited in how much extra fuel they could carry.

Roook: lol new yorkers. oh my god. I'm surprised it took him that long to lose his shiat. I kind of feel bad for the flight attendant. I deal with people in the service industry and people are complete assholes when they don't get what they want. You can only take so much shiat from people when it's not your fault.


That may be true but this situation was extreme and a professional should be expecting people to be short tempered and grumpy. Some empathy was warranted this time.

Nice plug for your band there
