Is the lack of telephone service affecting the airlines?

I just got a call from my husband at Miami Airport, on his way home from Banana Beach. Two friends that were scheduled to fly home with him today decided to go on a dive trip instead and get a flight home tomorrow. My husband asked me to get a message to them at Banana Beach that the airline (American) might not be issuing new tickets due to the lack of phone service.
I emailed the resort, I believe they're still online despite the phone outage.
Does anyone know if it's true? His friends can't SWIM home to Florida!

One very important aspect of any vacation is the ability to fund it. Make sure you bring more cash and travelers cheques than usual. It's hard to pay by credit card at some places. The bank ATMS are out of service.

I called American- they said the only info they have is that their systems in Belize were down, so they advise all travellers leaving Belize to get to the airport earlier than usual because check in might take longer. Flying to Belize seems fine.

So ATMs and credit card machines are down? Any issues with the flights to San Pedro?

Having no phone service in or to the entire country for four or five days? No, that doesn't have any impact on airlines or tourism. Duh.

Lan, your responce was interesting. I just spoke with someone who's flight was canceled when the phone lines were out and that they then resumed flights. Just thought an update would help some, but the past few days flights are regular.
