Just spoke with Frank. It is complicated and he, Donna, and Continental continue to work on arrangements. The team is leaving for the airport reasonably soon in hopes they can all get on American Flight #954 to Miami. Once in Miami, Donna will work out arrangements to get them to Omaha or an airport close. But, and here is the big but, we booked this flight yesterday just in case but now American and Continental are dueling over how many seats they gave us. Last night we were told we had them for all 41. Now we are being told something different. All this of course depends on whether the airport is open for traffic in and out. We will see.
I did check the regularly scheduled Continental flight 755 for today and even though the seat map shows 7 empty seats Donna is telling Frank the flight is completely sold out. She simply said the map has not been updated.
I spoke with both Carolyn and Fr. Cosgrove about 1/2 hour ago and they all had a wonderful breakfast and were in good spirits. Looking to get to the airport to see if they can come home.
Will keep you posted.
