The flight was re-routed to a different airport where we were forced to remain on the plane. Getting time estimates was quite difficult, asking immediately angered the crew , and most estimates given were outright lies. Although passengers were hungry because of the extended time aboard the aircraft, the service crew refused to sell any food or even provide water.
