Singer Michelle Williams is breathing a sigh of relief after arriving back in the U.S. from Britain in time for Christmas following a flight cancellation earlier this week (begs20Dec10).
The former Destiny's Child star was due to fly out of the U.K. to spend the festive season in her native America, but her scheduled take-off from Heathrow Airport on Tuesday (21Dec10) was axed due to extreme weather conditions.
Williams was left fuming by the cancellation, raging on Twitter.com, "I am gutted beyond repair! I'm so irritated! It ain't snowin here! It's just cold outside! They need to get some de-icer 4 the planes and salt 4 the runway!"
The singer was given hope on Thursday (23Dec10) when she was offered a flight, and updated her online fans with the message: "Looks like I'll get home today from London! I won't confirm until my two 'cheeks' are planted in a seat on a Boeing 777!!!"
And the star was delighted when the plane took off and she arrived back in Chicago, Illinois later that day.
In a post on the microblogging site, she writes, "By the way.... hommmmmmmme!!! I made it back to Chicago!!! And I'm glad about it!!!"
