Mine was on a Southwest 737-3H4 N347SW on 7/21/91. We were flying from Las Vegas to Albuquerque. As we were approaching ABQ at night there were thunderstorms in the area. We were on our final approach when the runway lights suddenly went out. We did a missed approach. The captain announced that he didn't know when we would be able to land, so we would circle in a holding pattern for awhile. I was worried because of the storm we were flying through and the high mountains just east of the airport. I couldn't see anything except the lightning that was lighting up the clouds we were in. Then the captain said that we didn't have enough fuel to hold much longer, so he was going to try to find an alternate airport where we could land and refuel. After a few more circles, he announced that we would fly to Lubbock, Texas, to refuel. After we returned to cruising altitude, it was announced that flying time to Lubbock would be an hour and something. I was thinking that if we were low on fuel, could we fly that long? And what if we got to Lubbock and they were closed for some reason? Well, we made it to Lubbock okay, and by the time we had refueled, the captain announced that Albuquerque was now open, so we took off immediately and landed safely at ABQ and hour or so later. That was the only flight where I was really uneasy. I do commend the captain for keeping us constantly updated. If he hadn't reassured us, it would have been much worse.
