On a recent flight from Denver to DC, the pilot’s voice came over the loudspeaker, while we were still at the gate an hour after our original departure time.
“So the reason you see us all standing around doing nothing is that they are just now loading your bags on the plane. And my guess is that you all need some clothes wherever you are going. So we have to wait.”
Did he just say that?
“And I am just as sorry as you are that I am yet again apologizing for the airline.”
For real. He said that.
