Transatlantic flight

On a transatlantic flight the passengers are awaken by the captain's announcement that one of the plane's 3 engines had failed and they were going to be 30 minutes late because of it. No one complained much and the flight went on.

About 45 minutes later the captain announced the second of 3 engines failed, but it was still okay and the flight would be 2 hours late because of it. At this point a disgruntled passenger says aloud, "wow! If we lose another engine, we're gonna be up here all day!!"
