    How long was your longest flight delay? Five hours? Overnight?

    You were probably pretty annoyed. Imagine, though, if you were told your flight would be delayed by more than eight decades.

    That’s exactly what happened to a load of EasyJet passengers scheduled to fly from Geneva to London Sunday, according to The Independent. The 130 passengers received the message, “We are writing to inform you that your flight will depart as 9485 at 11:00 local time on 29/07/2099.” (July 29, 2099).
    That’s 86 years and one day from the original flight date.

    On the other hand, having been told the flight would be that late, some people would be ecstatic if it took off next Thursday. :eek:
