Valentine's Day... I got up at 6:00 AM and headed to JFK for a
Jet Blue flight to Burbank
i got to JFK around 7 and got to the gate around 8, but they started
having delays because of the snow... at 8:30 they shut down
the runway and instantly almost all the flights except mine got
canceled, the reason mine didn't get canceled was because the
plane was already there with the bags on it and ready to fly, so the
figured when the runway opened the plane would take off...
Sometime around 3:00PM I found Pensyl drinking at the bar!
At around 5PM they opened the runway back up and the announced my
flight was going to board and leave.
But, what really sucks is they sent out 2 Burbank flights before
mine that weren't even late, and they made it to California...
but our flight didn't have a crew or something... so we we waited for
them to show up...
then we got on the plane and waited to get de-iced... but the
line was taking too long
I guess it takes an hour per plane to get all the ice off.
So we went back to the gate to get more fuel and a new pilot because of
union rules about working to long.
Then at about midnight the decided to cancel all remaining Jeblue
flights and let us off the plane.
Then I had to wait at baggage claim with all the people from all the
flights... like thousands of people.
and wait for them to bring out the bags from my plane, but they were so
backed up that took hours...
I finally got my bag at 2AM and took a cab home....
after 19 hours at the airport I was back where I started... it's
valentine's day and I'm catatonic
