Many of these security provision exist in the same form here in Canada. I'm glad that the United States has finally cracked down on security loopholes, I just wish they had done it earlier.

Yes I am glad they are getting tighter security in the airports since these plane crashes.

But see folks, as I just wrote (very wordily, I might add) in another thread, NONE of these measures would have stopped yesterday's sequence of events, any of those events. Those guys all had tickets. They were following all of the applicable laws (their box cutters were perfectly legal). I don't know about the mace thing- is it true that they used mace on first class and business class (767 cabins for transcons had business class I guess) passengers?

But still, these guys were everyday, low profile flyers like you and me. THEY HAD tickets. Who would have thought to stop them?

Northwest Airlines Will Resume Limited Operations
Carrier urges customers to contact airline before leaving for airport

MINNEAPOLIS (September 13, 2001) -- Northwest Airlines today announced that it will operate a limited number of scheduled passenger flights beginning at 6:00 p.m. CDT, today. The carrier said it expects to operate a majority of its scheduled flights on Friday. The airline will continue to build its level of service during the next few days.

Northwest said it is continuing to evaluate the level of future service. It remains committed to resuming passenger flights in a manner that provides both safe and efficient service to its customers.

The airline also reported that throughout the day today, it will continue to operate recovery service for international flights that were diverted to international destinations on September 11, and would be repositioning aircraft diverted to domestic destinations.

Richard Anderson, Northwest’s CEO, said, “Everyone at Northwest Airlines joins our nation in expressing sympathy for the victims and their families involved in the tragic incidents in New York, Washington, D.C. and western Pennsylvania. These events deeply sadden us all.”

“All US airlines, including Northwest, are fully committed to providing passengers with the safest and most reliable air travel possible. We ask passengers for patience as airlines, airports and government agencies work together to restore the air travel industry to full service,” Anderson added.

WHAT CUSTOMERS SHOULD KNOW

Northwest is urging customers to confirm the status of their flights at www.nwa.com or at the airline’s automated flight line (1-800-441-1818) before proceeding to the airport.

Customers are urged to arrive at the airport at least two hours before their flight departure time for domestic flights and two and one-half hours for international flights.

United Airlines has issued a new update confirming details of its operating plan. United plans to resume operations as follows, operating under the FAA's 11-point security directive for all North American airports:

United will not begin operations with scheduled flights until 8 a.m. (CDT) on Friday, September 14. At that time, it will begin operating with a significantly reduced schedule and plans to continue operating that reduced schedule through the weekend.
United today continues to work to complete flights that were diverted on September 11, and will also reposition some aircraft in preparation for resumption of service.
United will continue to issue updates on its operational plan as they become available.


Flight Information Update - September 13, 1:45 p.m.

American Airlines/American Eagle will resume limited scheduled flights today beginning at 3 p.m. CDT, corresponding with the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) plan to re-open the nation's airways. TWA flights should resume by 1:00 p.m. CDT. Schedules are subject to FAA guidance and approval.

American will operate approximately 70 scheduled passenger flights today, mostly inbound to its hub cities, to prepare for a fuller operation on Friday. American Eagle will operate 75 flights today and TWA will also operate a reduced schedule. Operations will be focused on moving the 147 aircraft that were diverted on Tuesday to airports other than their intended destinations. With FAA permission, these flights will be flying throughout the day to their intended destinations. Schedule and destination information for all these interrupted flights is being finalized.

American plans to gradually resume more flying until it reaches about 80 percent of the capacity it flew prior to the hijacking tragedy and the implementation of new airport security measures.

Customers are urged to confirm flight status before proceeding to the airport and should arrive two hours prior to scheduled departure time for domestic flights and two and one-half hours for international flights.
