Pilot Apology?!

Dear Diary, I may not be the only person who’s had travel experiences vary from plan.  That said, the one most seared into my brain is one I expect many passengers on that April 2011 flight will also never forget.

With about an hour to go on the flight, the pilot announced: “We are going to get you to the gate a half hour early, and I want to apologize to you for not delivering you all the flying time you paid for.”

Mr. Pilot, thank you for being big enough to apologize!
