Stranded British Tourists Colonize Newark Airport

April 21, 2010

I can't help it. I know that the volcano in Iceland that has delayed air travel must be terrible for those who are stranded, but this headline in The Wall Street Journal makes me laugh:

The British are always so . . . British. 

Always colonizing and drinking tea.

And the French are, well, French. Love this quote:
And some stranded British and French travelers separated themselves into opposite camps. Brits on Tuesday night jokingly called the opposite side of their terminal the "French Quarter." Earlier Tuesday, a large group of French travelers boarded a flight home, and it couldn't have happened soon enough for some of the Brits. "The French have been a pain in the butt," Mr. Simkiss said.
