Instant Delay: One Flight To Houston, Texas Delayed Due To…Rice?
We've all experienced various travel delays. Not only are they out of our control sometimes, they can just simply test our patience right? Nobody likes being stuck in one place for longer than expected.
Sometimes it's weather, and other times the plane itself has an issue. Heck, even waiting for the crew to get to the plane is something that could happen due to technical issues. But let's go back and talk about the plane issues we mentioned.

One traveler on the plane interviewed by described the situation that caused an hour delay:
