Passengers on a Virgin Atlantic Airways flight say they were kept on a hot plane without food or
water for more than four hours at Connecticut's Bradley International Airport.

Passengers say it began when they were diverted to Bradley because of bad weather during a flight from London to Newark, N.J.

They say they landed at about 8:20 p.m. and were kept on the plane until about 1 a.m. Wednesday.

Passengers say people were yelling and screaming, and at least three people fainted and were taken away in ambulances.

The aircraft was carrying 300 passengers and 14 crew.

A Virgin Atlantic spokeswoman says the airline apologizes for any inconvenience, and passengers will be bused to Newark.
