Sorry you have a flight this Friday.


Believe me, I share your concern. I'm supposed to be in JFK on Monday.

Coast to coast flight!

I'd like to know too - I've got a flight from Toronto to Vancouver on Saturday early morning. They've got over 50 diverted planes between them resting there that they've got to deal with first.
I want to see things get back to business as soon as possible - it'll show those terrorists that we can persevere....

Im flying from LGW to MCO at midday on friday. Virgin have told me they have no plans to cancel the flight, and news over here says that the FAA is opening the skies again at 4.00 GMT

I'm supposed to fly to LAX tomorrow. That's going to feel very strange.
