I heard about those guys stuck on the tarmac for 11 hours or something at JFK yesterday. It's unbelievable. I'm pretty sure that after about 3 - 4 hours or so I would be ready to go out the emergency exit. I could spend the night in jail, on a nice firm bed, which would be a pretty good alternative.
It seems like it would get me off the plane, but would they let everybody else off too? Anybody know how much trouble I'd be in?
