Tarek said in an Instagram Story, “Alright. You guys don’t believe this, but pilot was timed out.” [and]We had to leave the plane. Still in New York City. We are still at baggage claim.

According to The IndependentThe term “timed-out” is a reference to the laws that limit how long pilots can fly within a given time frame. The outlet states that pilots should have at most 10 hours of sleep each night between flights.

After enduring these many road bumps, Tarek and Heather headed to a hotel to get some much needed rest—and in Tarek’s case, to get a social media shoutout from Heather as well.
