Spoke with Frank at 6:15 A.M. our time. I did give him one other option. If Continental does fly today and if there are even a few seats, we will try to get a few of them on that regular flight. Then he will shift to the American to Miami option, if they fly, and if Donna works out the connecting flight to Omaha, even if it would be Tuesday. Both Frank and I agree the most important thing at this point is to get them back on U. S. soil. If we take a chance and wait for Tuesday with Continental and those 35-36 seats, we cannot guarantee they will fly and we would have passed up maybe our best option.
He does believe if things don't work out well today that we should begin sending them in small groups with a chaperone with each.
Frank plans on visiting with Donna at 8:00 our time this morning and he will be at the airport with Carlos the Continental supervisor. I will post a blog once I have further information.
