JASON CASTRO IS AS SWEET AS HE LOOKS- EVEN UNDER DIRE CIRCUMSTANCES
American Idol’s Jason Castro put up with a boatload of misery on a grueling airline flight last week and he never cracked a scowl. Journalist Sue Facter happened to be seated a few rows behind Jason on an American Airlines flight from Newark to LA, Tuesday night at 6:30. Flight attendants and passengers were aflutter at the sight of the exhausted Jason and he was “friendly and accommodating.” But he never got to nap. The flight was delayed for hours and finally everyone was sent to hotels. The next day he was bumped to coach and THAT flight made an emergency landing in Chicago for mechanical reasons. Hours later, passengers were complaining loudly as they were herded onto yet another plane. Jason was again bumped to coach and this flight had no pillows, blankets, and ran out of food! Passengers had to share their tiny sandwiches! Through it all, Sue says, Jason remained charismatic and sweet to everyone. It took three planes and 24 hours to get him to LA – and he was still smiling.
