So this is what happened:
There was heavy fog cover at LAX and the plane we were on was on a holding pattern for about 30 minutes. The pilot announced that we only had about an hour's worth of fuel left and he couldn't wait out the fog. So he announced that we would be flying to Las Vegas to land and stay overnight until the weather cleared up. Had we chosen a better grade of carrier it would not have been a problem as higher end carriers have the avionics to land in zero to near zero visibility.
Once we landed in Vegas, they kicked us off the plane and told us where our luggage was going to be located and that we would be delayed until 8:30 the following morning. Mind you, we had arrangements made for Thursday night and we nothing about Vegas. We arrived there so late in the evening that there were no terminal facilities open and we were forced to eat chips and soda for "lunch/dinner". It was a harrowing experience for sure, but at least we got a free trip to Vegas, right?
