At the beginning they asked for someone to give up their seat. I checked it out and would not have been able to get a flight until the next day. They would keep announcing there was a small delay. It was to change a light bulb (for the floor emergency exits). We were already in line to go on and being alone I couldn't ask anyone to watch my carry on as I was in a wheelchair. We were there for 2 hours!!
I was a lucky one because I was only going to Chicago. No one could possibly make their connections. I do know on Red Hat lady flying alone (85) that needed to make a connection.
