Yes, I can see that my question was, perhaps, premature. But today some US citizens have finally started being evacuated to Cyprus, and I'm wondering about a number of things: What is the capacity of the airport there (?); What means are being set up to handle the increase of US citizens to leave and return to the US(?); and finally, the question which prompted this thread, will the US DOD charter a/c to go in and facilitate their return? I can't imaging the US gov't just stranding US citizens with no assistance to return to the US. On other occasions where mass evacuations have been necessary, there are the airlines (which really WANT these contracts) are under contract with the US DOD to do this sort of thing.
Has anyone heard if this will be happening, and if so, which ones are being readied to do it?
There's nothing more beautiful than flying into the dawn.
