Fuck France and their liberal socialist bullshit union labor laws. Flight out of Paris delayed for over an hour and a half due to a, "safety check". Really? You're Air France, the national fucking airline at Charles the fuck de Gaulle the national fucking 10th busiest airport in the world and you don't have an available maintenance crew to do a safety check? Really? So you enjoy having an overpriced 4 engined paperweight of an A340 sitting on the tarmac? Just giving the french middle finger and a big french fuck you to all the passengers in the terminal staring out at it who at any moments notice are about to make the snarky gate agent wish she was Marie Antoinette. Oh wait, she's safe we had to leave our pitchforks, torches and guillotines at the security checkpoint. So fuck you to the french, Air France and their bullshit labor union laws delaying our departure and leaving us with less hope than Hillary on election night of making our connection and condemning us to a modern day sentence at Papillon of having to spend a night in Detroit in order to get a flight back home arriving at noon to the 10th circle of Hell Dante never envisioned known as Phoenix in the summer.

At least you aren't in Colorado. Girlfriend just texted me, 5 hour delay. She got there at 5AM for no reason. Damn socialist Coloradoians! Or maybe they are all to stoned to prep the plane.

Deep breaths, relax.

Based upon what you experienced, they have snuck in and are running ATL as well.

Safety check meant there was something wrong with the plane. Especially an hour "safety check".
Once delayed for a faulty seat cushion on a flight from Pittsburgh to Orlando. The seat cushion might not float due to a problem. Uhhh, we're not going over an ocean here. I get it though.
Marlboros and whiskey my friend, it'll make it better. On second thought, maybe not.


I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not.

The best kept secret in the airline industry: those seat cushions sink like a bowling ball. Shhhh... don't tell anybody.

I sat on the tarmac for three hours once in LA waiting for them to fix the little led or rope lights that line the floor/aisle of the plane.

MY limits of tolerance: I stood in the terminal for an hour in ATL watching a mechanic "fix" the FO's side windshield wiper on a delayed commuter jet.

Off to Avis I went. Beat the flight home in a rental car and made Delta pay for it.

ALL AIRLINES SUCK!

Yeah! Screw em all! The hell with all those pesky FAA regulations. Who needs working safety equipment anyway? Wink

Not aimed at the OP. The French are just...well...French.

I do not want to fly via airline again (rduckwor is correct, all airlines suck). Ever. But if I really, really, have to, I consider that those lights are a very necessary safety item. In the event of a smoke-filled cabin, those little lights are needed to guide you out, to safety.

Couple times I had smoke in the cockpit in small General Aviation airplanes. The door was within reach and I wasted no time getting out. I can just imagine the scene with a hundred or more panicked passengers stumbling around.

Yeah, and my 4 hour delayed United flight from IAD-DEN last week was their fault too! After all, the pilots were on a connecting flight from a town named after a Frenchman, Louisville, KY! Bastards!
