  About two hundred Canadians are happy to be home after they say Sunwing  abandoned them and left them stranded in Cuba.

The flight was supposed to have left Veradero, Cuba Saturday night, but was delayed until 6:30 the next morning.

Passengers say while they waited at the airport there was no food or water and the washrooms eventually ran out of toilet paper.

Their distress didn’t end there.  When the group finally got up in the air an in-flight announcement from the pilots said that they had to divert to Windsor, Ontario as the crew was on the verge of exceeding their allowable flight time.

Passengers had to be put on buses  and driven to Toronto.

One passenger told the CBC that while other flights were taking off and people were being sent back to their resorts, the Sunwing group was just allowed to languish.
