No hotel rooms and food or drinks available.Edit

I was one of the passengers whose flights were canceled and had to spend the night in Paris - there were no food or drinks provided by Air France, except about 20 cups of water every hour while we were waiting in line (for me it was 5 hours until I quit the line at 11:30 pm)... while the number of passengers waiting was more than 150. By about 9 pm they had stopped giving out hotel rooms because there were no more hotel vouchers. About a 100 people in front of me were still in line at that point and would probably have to spend the night at the airport. I was lucky to have a friend in Paris who had found me a hotel to spend the night. — 13:23, 8 January 2009 (UTC)
