Flight Delayed By Hockey
« on: March 11, 2010, 07:21:39 PM »

Air Canada learns that hockey trumps flying
The airline was forced to delay a flight from Vancouver during the 2010 Winter Olympic Games  because passengers watching the end of gold medal final on airport televisions ignored repeated calls to board.

"We incurred a flight delay for a reason Air Canada had not yet encountered in over 72 years of existence," chief executive Calin Rovinescu told a business gathering.

The Canadian fans were rewarded for their delay, as the nail-biting end to the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics saw Canada beat arch-rival United States 3-2 in overtime.

On my last flight they weren't waitin' for my ass regardless of what game was on.

Kinda funny though.  On my last flight (I'm not big on flying so I wait 'til the last minute sitting at the bar pouring beer down.  I figure 1:52 means 1:52.) I come running walking very quickly up to the gate and I hear the ticket guy on the radio saying "We're just waiting on Michael Smith".  I smile and show him my pass and he says better get your ass down that ramp.  The stewardess has a sense of humor and as I board the plane she announces "Ladies and Gentlemen Michael has made it.  Everyone please give a warm welcome to Michael as he makes his way back to his seat and we can now depart."  Half the plane was laughing, cheering, and clapping.  For a moment I was a rock star.
