Now Everyone Can Fly… Later. Much Later

180 passengers held five AirAsia crew members hostage for 2 hours because frustration caused by a prolonged delay of their flight to Kuala Lumpur this morning.The flight was previously planned to take off at 6.15, but was delayed to 12 PM. Come 12 PM, another announcement was made that the flight had been postponed to 3 PM. Eventually the disgruntled passangers took the flight crew hostage and the airport authorities had to intervene.If I was cooped up in a boring airport lounge for 9 hours, I think I’d go crazy as well.
