Man's Hilarious Reaction To Flight Delay Has Gone Viral

We all deal with hard times differently in life. But when one man got given lemons, he really took it on the chin, headed to the airport bar and cracked on with it.

In a video that's recently surfaced online, a guy was watching an old episode of Airline and came across this absolute cracker - taking to Twitter to share the joy with the world.

In the episode, an unnamed passenger, who is the unfortunate victim of a flight delay on the way to Malaga, was interviewed by the show.

The airline are offering delayed passengers refreshment vouchers and a refund on their flight because of a four hour wait. After speaking to a lady, who in all fairness seemed pretty happy with the offer, they head to the airport bar.

And there he is. The man, the myth, the legend.

When asked about how he feels about the delay, he casually replies: "I'm pretty chilled out about this actually, I've had five pints of Guinness..." so far, standard response from a person trapped in a building with a bar.

And then, he pushes it that bit further: "...and my wife's just left me for another man, I can't mention the name - oh Jacqui - I'm ever so sorry about that."

He continues: "So actually, the fact that there's a four hour delay on a flight doesn't bother me."

What a guy - not bothered in the slightest. Luckily for the airline, he's taken both the absconsion of Jacqui AND the four hour flight delay amazingly well, and in the only way one could deal with such a situation - get a bev in.

He wasn't lying when he said that he's 'pretty chilled out'.

For anyone who's not familiar with the concept of Airline, it followed the story of - you guessed it - an airline.

Starting in 1998, the show filmed Britannia Airlines at Manchester Airport, then EasyJet at airports across the continent.

The cameras watched the reactions of passengers, ground workers and flight crew to the different trials and tribulations of flying with budget airlines - which believe me, there are many.

Now if the internet could just go ahead, do its thing and bring the Guinness man to us - that would be great.
