It was a dark and stormy night june 27th....

when we arrived at the Camaguey airport after 5 p.m. The ominous clouds in the distance fortold a major storm was pending!!! It looked like something out of ghost busters!Of course, Sunwing was right on top of it! By departure time it was obvious something was uip and it wasn't us. 30 minutes later ifo overhead announced that no plane had arrived...lol. by then it was thundering and lightening to beat the band. 30 minutes after that it was announced the plane was delayed... no kidding. 30 minutes later we were informed our plane was in Jamaica!!!! rofl. 2 1/2 hrs. later the storm had passed , our plane arrived and we departed. Thought maybe the plane had dropped off and picked up passengers at Varadero... certainly Jamaica wasn't on our list. at 11 p.m. Sunwing fed us snack paks of bottled water, pop, submarine ham and cheese and a large can of pringles. We don't know if the Varadero Camaguey people on the plane were allowed off in Jamaica or left sitting from 4.15 p.m. until after midnite arrival at Camaguey. A long day's journey into night for sure. regards. carol e.p.s. it could have happened to any airline!!!!
