As you might imagine, it was hectic and a little emotional around here on Thursday with the news from London.  Our airports are going to be a bit hectic too, and if you are traveling with us today (or the next few days), please check our Travel Advisory page on

Ouch. I've got a friend flying home from BUF to LAX this weekend, I feel really bad for anybody affected by these security directives. But, it is for the better. I'm glad that these people were caught and their plot unraveled.

This only serves as a reminder that we are at war and that evil people want us to live in fear. I remember boarding a Southwest flights days after September 11th, when the skies finally opened up again. On one of the flight attendants uniform shirt she had a sticker that said "KEEP AMERICA FLYING." This rings true today.. We must carry on with our daily lives...

So far the BUF-LAX plans have been having a decent day. The leg that was scheduled to arrive at 11:40 PDT arrived at 12:55 PDT. But 971and 961 (which were scheduled to arrive at 3:20 and 6:10 PM) arrived nearly on-time. 2537 from LAS is only running 30 minutes behind ( not bad for a LAS-LAX). 321 is probably having weather issues at MDW not terrorist related. As I write 2512 is running close to schedule. Not bad for the first day for the BUF-LAX plans.

Being unable to carry my water and tea on board will be a real problem for me. I suggest that the planes be stocked with additional beverages until this problem is resolved. I am flying this weekend and would really appreciate being handed some water or unsweetened tea as I board!
