Airline Apologizes to Passengers Stranded for a Week at JFK

Officials at Scottish carrier FlyGlobespan have apologized to the planeload of passengers it stranded at JFK for a week (a week!) after the aircraft it was scheduled to use on its flight to Ireland was struck by lightning.  With that plane knocked out of service, a replacement needed to be flown in from Glasgow.  However, because of the heightened security at Glasgow, they couldn’t fly the plane from there (that sounds suspicious to me, but I can’t argue with the random article I’ve linked to).  It took about a week to get all of the 200 passengers out of JFK and onward to Ireland.
