It sucks to be President and without a presidential plane. And no one to give her a “ride”.

Laura Chinchilla, following her own directive prohibiting the use of borrowed private planes, posted on Twitter being stuck at the Panama airport for five hours.

What a drag!”

Earlier this year, Doña Laura took two jaunts in a private plane with alleged ties to drug trafficking.

On her follow up trip to Colombia, the Presidenta was able to get a “ride”  from Chile’s president, Sebastián Piñera.
Chinchilla was attending the Ibero-American summit in Panama City, where half of the presidents of member nations failed to show.

Only 11 presidents attended the 23rd Ibero-American summit in Panama City, which was to have brought together 22 leaders. Instead of meeting annually, they decided to get together every other year instead, starting after next year’s summit in Veracruz, Mexico.

Among the no-shows were leaders from most of the more powerful countries in South America, including Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff, Venezuela’s Nicolas Maduro, Chile’s Sebastian Pinera, and Argentina’s Cristina Kirchner. On Friday, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto met on the summit sidelines with Panamanian President Ricardo Martinelli on Panama’s plans to join the Pacific Alliance, a trade bloc that includes Mexico, Chile, Colombia and Peru.

Also missing, for the first time since the group first met in 1991, was Spain’s King Juan Carlos, who is still recovering from hip surgery.
