I use a Goot solder sucker with the largest tip on the iron I can fit in the area and iron on full blast, makes desoldering quick. I prefer the Goot over the Metcal rework station.

Solder gets stuck in the hole because the joint is too cold and the solder is not liquid, ground planes are the hardest to desolder. A large tip a hot iron and speed means less heat soak into the PCB. A small tip and heat applied too long can have pads lifting from the PCB.
