I hate flying regardless, but if this happened to me, I'd be in jail for destruction of property when I tore the door off of the plane to get out. Talk about travel hell.

They couldn't find a bus? It's a fucking 90-minute trip to the Twin Cities. None of these idiots thought to get a bus from Minneapolis to drive out to Rochester?

What a bunch of fucking idiots. Everyone on site should be fired for idiocy.

If it is true that the airline would not allow the passengers off of the plane, then the people on board who asked to leave should file kidnapping charges.

It's against federal law to disobey commands from the flight crew, not sure you'd have luck with local police looking into a kidnapping.

The best bet would be to stage some kind of unprovable medical emergency. Grab your chest and roll onto the floor. Or pay someone to do that. I'm sure they'd open that plane right away.

i was stuck on a plane once for 12 hours. first it was engine trouble which delayed us for 2 1/2 hours. once that was fixed we started to roll out of the gate, we were almost at the runway, when the captain said "sorry folks there is a storm moving in looks like we're just gonna have to wait it out." 5 1/2 hours later the storm finally passes. so after 8 hours of teaching this asain the English language and half of Spanish. we were finally cleared for a 4 hour flight. that made me hate flying and it made me hate Philadelphia.
