Quoting JBo (Reply 1):

What will they replace them with?  Wink

Just kidding... No... not the townsfolk.  flamed   flamed 

A blown tire... interesting.

But you know, one of these days Reynolds aluminum is going to reposes their missing beer cans.  Wink

HAHAHA....another reason to fly someone else out of FAR.

quoted from article [although quoting a passenger]:
"The airline planned to use a bus to shuttle passengers to Minneapolis, he said."


The flight left GFK at 8:01 am, landed in FAR (60 minute drive) at 8:54 am. Then following that, NWA busses them to MSP (3 hour drive). There had better be some compensation involved [if this is true]. What a terrible experience.
