United is trying to relaunch a limited schedule on Wednesday with a focus on getting emergency response and cargo down there ASAP. To my knowledge all UA
aircraft had been ferried out of MSY
before any harm was done.
We are currently trying to get in touch with the 183 employees in the area and have set up a 24 hr call center for them to report in. United has said that we stand ready to help those employees any way we can. United is trying to contact all employees who live in the MSY
area in the next couple days.
I know personally I'm very concerned because I haven't heard from my old roommate who now commutes from New Orleans. All phone lines are jammed in and out of there.
The debate continues... Starwood or Hyatt... which is better
