With a 3:15am start this morning, we are stuck on a plane that the pilot has announced has a "Transponder that creates an anomaly
where our electronics don't work at this airport" what does that mean? "and we will try to take you to Chicago....there is a lot of work going on between our dispatch and maintenance department"
Seriously...we have been sitting on here for 2 hours... and the pilot has been saying stuff like...
"So the plan is...they are going to fill it up full with gas, and run it!" Seriously, I'm not joking!
"We got 2 out of the 3 things worked out...things are looking good, we should be fine here shortly"
"now waiting on air traffic control approval to let us go with the system that doesn't work."
"we will make it at the lower elevation as long as we have enough fuel"
"just a lot of paperwork, legalize and stuff before they will let us take off"
Good thing I'm not scaaarrred of flying, but there are a lot of people on here that could use a very strong drink right about now...
HOPE to see you in Rausch Creek....
