yes it might not have been funny, but i never said anything about crash and burning. Planes do sometimes malfunction/breakdown in midair.
Dude, don't add fuel to the fire...
1. The plane being stranded is funny because it holds New Orleans back from their weekly schedule.
2. If the plane malfunctioned in midair, either the pilots could correct the issue, they would make an emergency landing and be stranded there, or the plane would go BOOM!
3. With the evil emoticon at the end of your post it left the reader to assume your worst intentions of context..
