Poll Vault: What's your worst travel experience?

By Michelle Holdway

Halloween has come and gone, but I still want to hear some horror stories.

Your travel horror stories, that is.

Last Saturday, passengers on a diverted JetBlue plane spent more than seven hours stranded on a tarmac in Connecticut after the snowstorm that socked the East Coast. One passenger told Bloomberg News that the last hours were spent without food or water or usable toilets.

Also over the weekend, a labor dispute grounded Qantas Airlines for 46 hours, stranding 70,000 passengers in 22 cities worldwide, according to the AFP news agency.

What's your worst travel experience? Does it involve lost luggage, lost reservations or simply getting lost? Have you been stranded in a plane, train or automobile?
