So my Flight was inexplicably delayed., The airport called my
phone and told me that the flight was going to depart 3 hours
later than originally planned. Apparently I was the only one to
receive that phone call because I was the only one to show up m
the later flight. Everyone else was put on to other flights., The en
result... |' m the only motherfucker on the plane [besides the High
attendant who is blaring Metallica over the FA after doing the
most hilariously minimal safety brief' ing),

I know I'm gonna sound like a hippie, but isn't this a terrible waste of fuel, even if the plane is carrying cargo?

Either way, that looks like a little puddle jumper. They are usually only done for flights that are going short distances. Say from like Phildelphia to Baltimore.

it would have had to fly to it's destination to be there for it's next flight anyways. even if there were no passengers.

The plane is likely due at another airport to received passengers anywho. It's gotta get there, and carrying one person is better than 0.

I don't think they would put as much fuel in as they would if they had a full flight. So not all hope is lost in the sake of conservation.

That's not to say that it wasn't going to travel to its destination anyways to load up for another flight. And with nobody on it, it weighs a lot less and burns less fuel.

The thing being the passengers are about 1% of the plane's income. The transport of people is more of an afterthought. In fact, most airports in the US don't even receive human passengers and are devoted only to cargo.

Well they postponed his flight and if they pushed it further away again, that would be intentionally obstructing him and if it was an important flight, they would have to pay **** tons of money for a private flight for him.

no because that plane probably has people scheduled to board it wherever it was going anyways. I think they would fly it regardless.

They put less fuel into it to compensate for the lack of weight. But they still need to get the plane to the next airport for the next flight of passengers.

What if..what IF the plane had another departure set from the location it was flying to? It would have to fly there anyway (I doubt an airline would have something like spare planes). It's like saying that an empty coursing bus is also wasting fuel.

It is unusual to find that situation. Normally if a plane is underbooked they'll transfer those passengers onto another flight with the same destination so that they save money.

They probably get all the fuel for that jet for less money than his plane ticket cost. Plus, that plane may be needed to depart from another location at a later time.

Even if there were no passengers on it, they would still have to fly. When that plane gets refueled and ****, more passengers will get on, and such. They have to keep making flights.

You can't down a plane with it. The reason why it's not allowed is back in the early days of such devices, it wasn't understood that they don't at all interfere with the plane's systems. And the rule stuck. In fact they're proposing lifting that ban in the near future.

My point is: Shouldn't they have actually ensured that this would not be a problem instead of just banning it and pretending that no one will leave their phone on? Imagine all of the people that could've died if it turned out phones CAN interfere with a plane's systems.

The ban is there because the devices CAN interfere with the navigation and communication systems of the plane. But Wi-Fi is provided on board by some airlines, and British airways allows the use of telephones and such as soon as the aircraft has landed. The ban is probably going to be lifted in a couple of years

Well, if that was the case, all sorts of electronic devices would have been banned I guess. But modern aircraft use a fly-by-wire system, where there is no mechanical linkage between the rudders and the yoke, its all electronics, so, theoretically, it may be possible for an electronic device, for example a phone, to interfere with the planes rudders. But I don't know, I'm not a pilot, my experience comes from Microsoft Flight simulator.

I just thought they should've ensured the possibility does NOT exist instead of just banning the electronic devices and hoping that people religiously follow that practice. It should've been obvious from the start that ban would be pointless because for some reason or another some won't turn off their device, or a new device comes out that people don't realize should be banned. no matter how you twist it, banning electronic devices was an idiotic and potentially catastrophic choice. They should've either ignored electronic devices or passed a law forcing airplane manufacturers to ensure their planes wont be interfered with by standard civilian technology.

I had a similar thing happen to me. I was walking to the bus stop to catch the bus into town, and as I rounded the corner, the bus was about to leave. I ran for it but it took off anyway, so I was pretty pissed, until another one turned up 10 seconds later.
My guess is the first bus was running really late for the other to have caught up to it, but it worked out really well for me because everyone at the other bus stops got on the first bus, so I had the whole bus to myself all the way to town.
The driver and I chatted the whole way, he was a really cool guy, and about halfway to town, after seeing that all the other passengers were getting on the first bus, the driver asked me if I was just going to the bus station.
When I said yes, he took a shortcut that missed out all the other stops and traffic and dropped me at the bus station, beating the first bus there.

TL;DR Got my very own bustaxi - 5 miles for the price of a single bus ticket
