  1. Wow, that’s a shame.

    Some of my longest and most miserable delays were in Chicago on ATA. Just sitting on the runway with no end in sight, the pilot coming on every hour to tell us that the flight would takeoff in the next 30 minutes, then it wouldn’t, then he’d get back on and say the same thing…good times.
