If you're having trouble, the flight attendant's announcement was "The captain cannot take off when we have ice on the wings, and we don't want to die."



Passenger Ella Ryan, posted to Instagram her account of the chaotic travel delays, "This is what happens when you've been delayed almost 8 hours, everyone's at a lost including staff 'we don't want to die' absolute mayhem. All hell was breaking loose when a member of staff made this outrageous announcement."



She also revealed passengers were "continuously receiving inconsistent reasons for the delay" and were only given a £3.50 ($7.20) voucher. You'd think after 8 hours they'd get a full refund.



The discount airline Ryanair responded with only a statement of, "We will be speaking to the crew member involved and apologize for the regrettable comment she made in the heat of the moment".

Everything was going fine on an International flight traveling from Tel Aviv to Toronto, until the plane's pilot recognized a heating malfunction in the cargo bay. Normally the pilot would have stayed the course, but this one knew a French bulldog was along for the ride.

So at great financial and time expense, the pilot decided to drastically change direction for the sake of the pup.

The seven-year-old French bulldog named Simba was taking its first flight when the pilot noticed the problem just as the plane was about to head over the Atlantic Ocean, where temperatures plummet.

With the dog's well-being in peril the pilot decided to land the plane in Frankfurt, Germany.

The dog's owner was more than grateful.

"It's my dog, it's like my child. It's everything to me," he said after they were reunited at Pearson Airport.

Aviation expert Phyl Durby said the pilot made the right call, despite tacking on about $10,000 in fuel costs and delaying the flight by 75 minutes.



Though the dog is named, the hero pilot was not identified. He could be anywhere out there, blending in with the rest of humanity. Ready to reemerge when he senses another French bulldog in turmoil.

Officials say a 16-year-old boy is lucky to be alive and unharmed after flying from California to Hawaii stowed away in a plane's wheel well, surviving cold temperatures at 38,000 feet and a lack of oxygen.

"Doesn't even remember the flight," FBI spokesman Tom Simon in Honolulu told The Associated Press on Sunday night. "It's amazing he survived that."

Simon said security footage from the San Jose airport verified that the boy from Santa Clara, Calif., hopped a fence to get to Hawaiian Airlines Flight 45 on Sunday morning. San Jose police say they will be reviewing whether charges are warranted against the boy.

NBC News reports that an American Airlines flight from San Francisco to New York was required to make an emergency landing in Kansas City on Sunday because one of the 215 passengers found a strange device taped to the ventilation system inside one of the bathrooms on the plane. Originally thought to possibly be an explosive device, what then appeared to be a flash drive turned out to be a small camera disguised as a flash drive. The FBI is currently investigating who the sneaky camera belongs to.

While the dust has yet to settle from Asiana Flight 214's crash-landing in San Francisco earlier this month, there has been another hard landing incident in New York's LaGuardia Airport, as shown in this video footage captured by a passenger aboard the Southwest Flight 345. According to the airline's spokesperson, yesterday's incident at LaGuardia was caused by the plane's nose gear collapsing while landing, and luckily, aside from 10 people who suffered minor injuries, most passengers were able to walk off the plane without treatment.
