Delayed Passengers Break Out In Song, “I Believe I Can Fly”

Flying is the worst.

You’re cooped up in close quarters for lord knows how long, the food stinks, and it costs an arm and a leg just to check a bag!

The passengers on a Las Vegas to Phoenix Allegiant Air flight had it really rough when they were stuck on the tarmac for four hours with no air conditioning. Temperatures soared into the triple digits that day under the hot Nevada sun.

According to one passenger’s account, there were “no snacks, no water, no A/C … Two people passed out, two vomited.”

Delirious from the delay and heat, they all turned straight up loopy and broke out into song.

Someone on the flight had carried on some portable speakers, which started blasting the very appropriately ironic R. Kelly tune, “I Believe I Can Fly!”
