Report: Madonna let off plane hours before other snowed-in passengers

December 21, 2010 |  4:37 pm

Madonna let off plane early Madonna knows a thing or two about perks, but a recent travel incident seems to have conjured more than standard star envy.

A Virgin flight bound for London's Heathrow airport out of New York containing Madge was diverted to nearby Stansted, where an overflow of weather delays kept passengers on the tarmac for three hours.

Except for passengers in the Madonna entourage, the Daily Mail reported Monday.

"After about an hour, a bus came along and took her and her party of about 15 off the plane. It seemed a ­little unfair — it's not like she is the president or anything. The rest of us all had to wait for another two hours," a first-class passenger told the paper. 

If the early out didn't ruffle enough feathers, alleged in-flight entertainment from the singer occurred before she was scooped from the craft.

"It was bad enough having to wait, but then she started doing her yoga in the aisles," the witness said.

Well, they say circulation is important at 30,000 feet. What do you think of Madonna's plane predicament? Tell us in the comments section below.
