Poor song choice: "You raise me up” plays on grounded Southwest flight

Passengers onboard a grounded Southwest Airlines flight to Baltimore on Monday were surprised to hear "You raise me up" playing over the aircraft speakers.

The filmer and her friends were forced to listen to the hit written by Norwegian-Irish duo Secret Garden as they waited for two hours on the runway at Norfolk International Airport.

"The irony? We weren't being raised at all," said the filmer.

Southwest Airlines are just one of the companies that experienced a technical outage, which news reports are attributing to a network problem.

Even though the tech issue has been resolved, a knock-on effect with planes being delayed and passengers missing their connecting flights.
