Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “A woman missed out on festive drinks after her first plane was struck by lightning and the replacement was struck by birds”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

She was trying to fly from Wellington, New Zealand's capital, back home to Auckland, its biggest city, when the plane operating her flight got struck by lightning, forcing it to turn back. 

Then another Air New Zealand plane was struck by birds, taking that aircraft out of service as well. 

The incidents meant a total of four flights between the two cities were canceled, with Carter missing out on her first party of the festive season.

She told local news site Stuff: "I got an alert telling me I had been cancelled, and then staff told me the rebooked plane was cancelled again, because it had been struck by birds."

Carter ended up spending a long afternoon waiting at Wellington airport. She tweeted: "2 flights now cancelled and no seats... getting wee bit anxious!"
