Being stranded at the airport-Hundreds of people found themselves spending Christmas Day at the Roissy-en-France airport outside Paris after snow and ice delayed some 400 flights in 2010. Travelers were understandably angry, but airport authorities tried to make the best of the situation by providing the stranded passengers with food, beds, Christmas toys, and even a costumed Santa Claus for the kids.
QUARANTINED ON A CHRISTMAS CRUISE. Over the 2012 Christmas holiday, about 5 percent of the people on a 10-day Caribbean cruise aboard the luxury ship Emerald Princess contracted what was suspected to be norovirus. This highly contagious bug causes stomach pain, diarrhea, and vomiting. In total, 166 passengers and 30 crew displayed symptoms of the virus. To make the holiday nightmare even worse, sick passengers were reportedly ordered to stay quarantined in their rooms or else face unnamed “consequences.”
BARELY AVOIDING DISASTER
Just after Christmas in 2016, a small plane carrying four people over central Alberta, Canada, started to have engine trouble. As it approached the airport, the pilot considered landing on the highway but decided against it because there was too much traffic. He instead opted for an emergency landing, gliding toward the nearby runway, but landed short, narrowly missing a power pole and a berm. “It was a Christmas miracle, because the plane had basically run out of power,” a local official told the CBC. “God knows what would have happened if they had hit all those things.”
