Flight delayed, plane replaced, because a couple took their seats too soon!

Authorities say a flight from Philadelphia to Boston was delayed and ultimately a different aircraft was used after a couple gained unauthorized access to the plane.

Officials said American Airlines Flight 1655 was slated to depart 8 a.m. Sunday, but two hours earlier, a man and woman walked on board through the doorway to the jet bridge and took their seats. The door should have been locked prior to the formal boarding process.

American Airlines officials said the couple was discovered during boarding. They determined the pair was on the correct flight, but the plane was de-boarded, searched and another aircraft was used “out of caution.”

WCVB-TV reports the couple didn’t speak English.

Well, there you go. Can’t be too careful about furriners, eh?

    Welcome aboard, here’s your seat …right next to these nice folks. Too bad we don’t understand the language they’re speaking since I’m sure that if we did they could probably explain how they got aboard this aircraft unobserved and tell us what they’ve been doing all by themselves for the last couple of hours. Oh well, no need to worry since they probably went through the TSA security checkpoint so just settle back and have a pleasant flight.
