Delta Flight Not Delayed
Logan Airport Tower - Originally uploaded on flickr by stevegarfield.
On my flight from Atlanta to Boston tonight, DL680, the pilot got on the intercom after pushing back from the gate. He told us that there were lots of delays heading up to Boston and that he was told that we were going to have to wait 3 1/2 hours before taking off.
He told ground control that it was unacceptable to have us wait in the ground for 3 1/2 hours, and the pilot was able to get us clearance to take off.
Thank you Delta for enabling your pilot to take control and turn a possible nightmare situation into an uneventful flight.
On the way out of hte plane i thanked the pilot for what he had done.
