American Airlines flight filled with fog after diversion

Passengers on an American Airlines flight from Miama to Costa Rica sat on the tarmac for three hours as the aircraft cabin filled with fog. The flight on 8 June was diverted to Managua in Nicaragua after the closure of Costa Rica’s Liberia airport due to potholes. Video footage taken by Jason Kral, a 35-year-old lawyer from Florida who described the experience as “10 hours of hell”, shows the cabin full of fog, while another passenger can be heard exclaiming, “Are you kidding?”. > Spent 10 hrs of hell with @AmericanAir. My flight from Mia to Lir was diverted to Nicaragua, we were stuck in a foggy plane for 3.25 hrs, they made no effort to feed my baby, no refund, no help, no hotel when they took us back to Mia. @WFLAShannon pic.twitter.com/6seg9Va8j4> > — Jason Kral (@Augiewrslr) > > June 10, 2019
