Cayman Airways flight KX620 from Grand Cayman to Kingston, Jamaica was delayed about an hour and 15 minutes on Monday. The plane pushed back but an issue with one of the Boeing 737’s engines forced the flight to return to its gate.
In response to the delay “one male passenger started chanting and praying and was getting louder and louder” and then a woman onboard ‘caught the spirit’,
Catching the spirit is something that some Christians believe in. It is a colloquial term meaning that she was feeling the spirit of the holy ghost which apparently can lead some persons to talk in tongues and jump for joy.
The woman jumps and yells “Hallelujah” and “Jesus” over and over. In the background some of the other passengers get into it too.
Meanwhile flight attendants try to calm her down and a passenger joins in the effort as well.
The woman was removed from the aircraft.
I’m most impressed that the mechanical combined with this ‘passenger service issue’ meant a delay of only 73 minutes.
