Just spoke with Frank. He is with the team at The General Hotel. Nothing is working very well at all - they have worked on this for hours already. There are very few good options. There were some options for tomorrow from San Pedro Sula if we would split up the team into multiple airports in the U.S. - 4 or 5 here, 4 or 5 there, etc. Frank rejected all those options knowing full well that would not be good.
Continental realizes they are duty bound to get this team home but the options they have in Tegucigalpa are very limited. I really don't know tonight whether they can get out even tomorrow.
I have contacted our agent in Oklahoma for help. She began to work on this right away and will be in touch with Continental. Hopefully she can get this worked out. Then I will let you know.
My cell number is: 712-540-3062
The two cell numbers in Honduras are: 011-504-9781-4235
Carolyn and Frank will purchase more time for both phones and let your sons and daughters call.
I don't know what else to say. We are doing everything possible to ensure their safety and get them home as soon as possible. I am very sorry.
