For the second time in three months, Secretary of State John Kerry has been stranded on a foreign tarmac by his Air Force jet and has had to catch a commercial flight back to Washington.

Thursday, Kerry was trying to get home from Vienna, Austria, after a day of negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program. But his plane had “mechanical problems,” according to a spokesperson, so he had to ride home with the masses.

It’s not the first time Kerry’s had to wait at an airport like the rest of the traveling public. Back in August, a 757 taking his staff, press delegation and him back to the United States was having electrical problems, so he had to stop in Hawaii to get on a United Airlines flight.
