BLACKSBURG, Va. (WDBJ) —  The Chung family boarded a Delta commuter flight from Detroit to Roanoke on Thursday. They didn’t expect to sit on the tarmac for nearly an hour and then another hour in the air with no air conditioning.

“It was a little warm but people were still coming in through the door and we thought it’s doable,” said mother Jennifer Chung.

Then reality set in and the  Chung family realized this flight would be very different than the ones they have taken before.

“And then they closed the cabin door, and then we realized, there was no air circulating.  There was no air conditioning, and there was no fan we just sitting still; door closed and the high that day in Detroit was 91,” said Chung.

To make matters worse, Jennifer and Eric Chung’s young daughters had to sit through the ordeal.
