    Her flight back to TO was cancelled so she's stuck in the Newark airport for the night. Flight in the morning leaves at 6:30 a.m.

    Fucking hell, JR. That sucks.

    A former colleague of mine had his luggage lost at Newark about a week ago. And I've told my horror story about Newark from our Cooperstown trip last summer. Hate that damn place. Worst airport in the nation, for my money.

    Wish I could help more than that. Best of luck.

    Funny. This thread came right under one where sxysportswriter said SHE was stuck in Newark. How about that.

    According to the Seattle thread Sxy and Mr. Sxy are also delayed there.

    Edit: Meat beat me to it.

    Hey, she was at the Toronto outing. HC knows her.

    Did they at least give her a room for the night? Or is she stuck "sleeping" in the terminal?

    Airports are hell on Earth.

    No, it was cancelled because of the weather so no freebee. Plus she has to be back at the airport at around 4:30 so she doesn't want to spend the money on a hotel.

    I'm still recovering from being mugged by a Hare Chrishna back in 1985 back in the old People's Express days. That airport is the 9th level of hell...with a Cinnabon.

    Does the airline at least have some sort of place where HC can be sheltered or at least not subject to the other travelers milling about the terminal? It's the least the airline could do for her and anyone else that's stuck.

    No, she's in the food court right now. She's got a book and her music. Said she might just put her head down on one of the tables.

    She doesn't want to spend $200.00 for a hotel --for about an seven hour stay

    Can't blame her at all for not shelling out $200 and I know it's not technically the airlines fault, but still...that's horseshit that she has to stay there for 10 more hours. I can't imagine spending a night in one of those joints. Airports make me feel like I smell and need a shower as is. (shut up!) I can only cringe at how I'd feel after an overnight stay.

    On the bright side, I bet this locks up "taking the train to NYC" for your 60th birthday, huh?
