10 Hour Flight Takes 28 Hours

300 passengers on a Northwest Airlines flight from Amsterdam to Seattle had a miserable experience, as they were stranded on the ground in Moses Lake, Washington, for 18 hours.  Because of fog at Sea-Tac airport, the airplane was forced to circle after its 10 hour flight from Amsterdam.  Once the plan ran low on fuel, it was diverted to Moses Lake, where it awaited another Northwest crew to take over.  This crew had to fly in from Minneapolis.  In a mean twist, the plane carrying the replacement crew had mechanical difficulties.  Passengers were not allowed off the plane for at least 8 hours, during which time the airplane ran out of food and its toilets broke. 

Northwest has apologized and offered the passengers vouchers for a future flight.
