I read about this in the Hamodia the other day. I meant to blog about it and then didn't get to it. So just now I saw someone's Facebook status where they were talkinga bout this.
Apparently, a subcontractor of Contintental airlines left people on an airline over night last Friday night. There was apparently some issue where they couldn't land and unload where they were supposed to. So, some other carriers resolved it by bussing people in from another airport and others just let their passengers off so they could wait in the airport. The article says that babies were crying and the mood was so eery that passengers could not just sleep the time away.
