Passengers stranded on tarmac for 12 hours
A travel nightmare kept passengers on an Etihad Airways flight stuck waiting on the tarmac for 12 hours and spending more than one day inside the aircraft.
Passengers were outraged as crew members reportedly refused to let them leave the plane after fog delayed their takeoff from Abu Dhabi to San Francisco.
The more than one hundred passengers were without food and flight information as they sat crammed inside the aircraft for 12 hours, the AP reports. Flight crews reportedly told passengers the airport was too full with other stranded flyers to allow them to wait there.
“I've been sitting on EY 183 in Abu Dhabi for 10 hours now. THIS IS NOT OK. There are kids and seniors on this flight,” one of the many disgruntled passengers tweeted.
The travelers spent a total of 28 hours inside the aircraft. The flight was only scheduled to take 16 hours.
Palin vs. PETA
A Facebook photo showing Sarah Palin's 6-year-old son standing on the family's dog to reach the kitchen sink has led to a heated online debate.
“It's odd that anyone—let alone a mother—would find it appropriate to post such a thing, with no apparent sympathy for the dog in the photo,” PETA said in reaction to the photo, which was originally posted by Palin as a New Year's Day greeting.
Palin posted a follow up over the weekend defending the pic and calling the animal rights group hypocritical.
“Dear PETA, Chill. At least Trig didn't eat the dog,” Palin's Facebook message begins. She goes on to reference a similar photo posted by the Ellen DeGeneres Show that did not garner backlash from the group.
The former Republican vice presidential nominee also gets political, saying “Did you go as crazy when your heroic Man-of-Your-Lifetime, Barack Obama, revealed he actually enjoyed eating dead dog meat?” in reference to the President's admission that he ate dog meat as a child in Indonesia.
