LOL! Not much chance of getting trapped up there in a plane! Have had some pretty miserable hours sitting on a ramp though. In the last 20 years I have flown hundreds of airline flights, many times international (although not since March of 2020 when I returned from Germany) and have never gotten sick. Not sure I want to go anywhere anytime soon though.
In January of 2018 I sat in a plane on the ramp at the Minneapolis Airport for 3.5 hours. We had no heat, no usable toilets, and no explanation of what was wrong. Finally an elderly lady behind me told the stewardess that she was going to have an accident in the seat, and that this was borderline elderly abuse. We taxied back to the terminal shortly after that. I haven't flown since, and I never will again. If I go to Seattle, I will take a leisurely drive of 3 days and enjoy the USA.
