As automotive writers at The News Wheel, we like to encourage you to hit the road as much as possible for your travel needs. But sometimes, people don’t listen to us, and they end up situations like these.

On top of the time spent on the turned-around flight, Chrissy and her family spent nearly seven hours waiting for a new flight.
