Stranded for nine hours in a 'sardine can'

(Airlines, Airports) Permanent link   All Posts

Being stranded for nine hours on any plane is an ordeal, but when the aircraft is a full 50-seat regional jet, you’ve got quite a testy situation.

Forty-seven passengers spent the night inside a Continental Express jet at the airport in Rochester, Minn., on Friday, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

The flight from Houston, operated by ExpressJet, was supposed to land at Minneapolis/St. Paul but was diverted to Rochester because of thunderstorms.

One of the passengers called being trapped in a "sardine can" with crying babies a "nightmare."

According to the Star-Tribune, an ExpressJet spokeswoman said sleeping in the airport terminal "was not provided as an option by ground services personnel at the airport."
