Subby forgot United Customer Care Agents "helping" seated passengers off the plane.

Who do they think they are - cops?

Among my various hair nets is an air traffic control certification. Centers are full of chess masters and Sun computer systems. An aging power supply could have caused the smell, considering how dated they're getting.

Fumes, and the lack of our essence, water.  Pure clean water.  I have had women try to rob me of my essence.   Why do you think floride was added to the water, hmm?  .

"The facility was evacuated at around 6:30 p.m. after people inside complained about fumes, the Loudoun County fire department told the Washington Post."

I thought Trump was going to fix air traffic control.

Another lie.

What does this have to do with the flight control tower being evacuated for smoke, dumbass?

No subby, perhaps *you* don't expect a delay at that point, but I will demanda delay over the pilot taking a stab at things without air traffic control

Yes, the Chicago cops who dragged that guy off think they are cops.   United's new policy is not to call the cops, just like undocumented immigrants.

I interpreted it as him smirking about "fumes" (farts).

I can't tell if some of you are attempting to make lame jokes or if you are actually in serious need of counseling from mental health professionals. Get a grip.

I literally just walked in the door after flying in from BWI with Southwest airline. Just a two hour delay for us fortunately. Unfortunately for many, many, many others, their flights were cancelled and they had no choice but to stand in line literally numbering over a hundred people to get reissued tickets at a counter that was being run by just TWO Southwest employees. I was appalled and felt bad for them.

Yeah. This.

That look always gave me a "I just pooped my pants!" look.

My flight home got delayed by that.  That's all I have to say.

maxandgrinch is referring to the headline which listed reasons you might delay a flight.  Remember the thing you clicked to get to the story?

not the tower, but the enroute center.  It takes  a higher skill set to work in tower and approach control.  Weaker sticks in the center.

Different skill set anyway. Plenty of easy to work towers and approaches around, plenty of difficult ARTCCs too.  (Retired NCT)
