The grounding of all flights in and out of the United States continues
to play havoc with travel to and from Belize. Although a limited number
of planes were allowed to fly today, it will take days or weeks for the
system to return to normal. For airlines in Belize, the first problem
will be how to handle the large backlog of passengers waiting to return
to their destinations in the U.S.A. According to Kim Aikman, country
manager for Continental Airlines in Belize, once they receive the go
ahead to fly, they well first accommodate all those passengers holding
confirmed tickets for that day's flight. They will then add people based
on how long they have been stranded. According to Aikman, while many
Belize-Americans who came down for the Tenth are stranded here, a
perhaps greater number remain stuck in Houston, where their flights to
Belize were abruptly cancelled on Tuesday.

Today Air Canada is operating at only 10% of capacity. So if your connecting to Air Can. I don't think you will get back yet. Maybe better to stay in Belize than Houston. Also when you Canucks get back here, you will find security is beefed up a lot. There are police carrying machine guns in all 3 terminals in Toronto, and no knives, nail files, or any sharp objects will be allowed as carry on baggage. Just off the news here.

I wish with all my heart that I was stranded in San Pedro Town right now. What exactly would be the PROBLEM with that?
