Wow!  This story gave me the most warm feeling ...  I'm really upset to see how the other passengers acted about their plane leaving a little later..but Mr. Pilot, just know that was the most incredible thing you could do!

They can't go anywhere without me and I wasn't going anywhere without you. Now relax. We'll get you there. And again, I'm so sorry."
