I've been a personal friend of John's for nearly 20 years. He demonstrated that we are all truly light and love. Although his physical presence is no longer with us, his song continues.
I have flown in and out of ACV for the past 25 years. Sure there is fog here and flights may get delayed, but nothing close to the chaos that plagues ACV now. I recently flew and not only did my flight get cancelled twice on leaving but the mayhem on returning was even worse. The pilot advised the passengers that we were being diverted to Crescent City and that they could get off there and at their own expense rent a car to drive back to ACV. He also said that he'd try to land one more time in ACV, but he felt there was little hope we'd be successful. All but 5 passengers disembarked (it was a full plane), but there were only a handful of rental cars available for over 25 people and all their luggage. They were stranded. The 5 of us who stayed on the plane would be flown back to San Francisco and have to drive back to ACV ourselves if the plane was unsuccessful in its final attempt to land. Luckily we were able to land at ACV but I couldn't stop thinking of all those people who were still in Crescent City with no way to get back. Shame on the "professionals" who let such a situation happen. United Airlines and ACV Airport Manager Jacquelyn Hulsey have shown me, as a passenger, that they are severely lacking in the ability to problem solve. This is a case of too little too late. Why did they wait until a crisis developed before putting a plan together? I believe the answer is incompetence.
