World Record Breaking Flight

Before she could even land in Narita Airport Ate Richie, among other passengers, learned that a strong earthquake shook Japan. Their flight was diverted to two other airports before they could finally land back in Narita.
After staying for more than 31 hours inside the Delta Flight, the flight attendant announced, “With 31 hours together, I think we are more than a family here.”

“Yun na ang pinakamahaba kong flight sa buong buhay ko. Wala nang tatalo ‘dun. 31 hours,” she told me this morning.
I then told my friends, “Okay na rin ‘yun kesa 127 hours.”
