Forget about ‘United Breaks Guitars,’ the hit YouTube video made by a disgruntled musician when the airline trashed his axe and refused to compensate him. Now United is taking heat for leaving customers stranded in unheated military barracks!
During a flight from Chicago to London, a United plane experienced mechanical problems and has to make an emergency landing in a remote part of Canada. While the crew was put up in a hotel, the passengers were brought by bus to the Spartan accommodations of a military installation as the temperature dipped near freezing.
Social media, as you can image, blew up when people started Tweeting. Get some of the passenger reaction here:
The United passengers ultimately arrived in London some 30 hours late.
Meanwhile, speaking of London, I don’t really know what to say about this next story! A British Airways flight en route from London to Dubai had to be turned around because of a passenger with a bad tummy. Someone apparently made the bathroom so smelly that passengers couldn’t bear it.
What flight horror stories do you have?!?!
