Passengers On Delayed Flight Sing 'I Believe I Can Fly' Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A video posted to YouTube depicts passengers on a long-delayed Allegiant Air flight in Las Vegas singing R. Kelly`s 1996 hit  `I Believe I Can Fly.`


Dustin Kaelberer, who posted the video, said the flight from Las Vegas to Phoenix was delayed for about five hours Sunday at McCarran International Airport before the passengers started joined in a chorus of the R&B hit."


With passengers suffering nose bleeds and throwing up in the bathrooms because of the heat, I can understand passengers resorting to desperate measure to fight the boredom.

But couldn`t the hapless passengers have selected a less saccharine song to sing? After listening to that ditty for more than five minutes I would get a nosebleed and start throwing up.

Here`s my list of songs I would sing if my plane was stuck in the tarmac for hours:

Van Morrison: Brown Eyed Girl

Village People: YMCA

Mungo Jerry: In the Summertime

Neil Diamond: Sweet Caroline

The Carpenters: Close to You

James Brown: I Feel Good
