I imagine some pax will rent a car for the three hour drive, probably at their own expense. Makes me wonder if any of you have had a bus or two Chartered by the airline in such a circumstance? Cheaper than delta paying hotels for everyone— by a landslide— assuming they can find a bus.

If it was scheduled to go somewhere other than back to DTW on it's first flight the next morning, then they'd have to send it (or another plane) to CLE in the morning anyway. Hotel rooms at contract rates for those that want it may have actually been cheaper than chartering last minute buses. If the plane was going anyway, this may have been the cheapest option.
