The New Orleans Louis Armstrong International Airport has reopened for humanitarian flights donated by several carriers who will be transporting refugees to a Texas military base. The airlines offering to help are Alaska Airlines, America West, American Airlines, ATA, Continental, Delta Air Lines, Jet Blue, Northwest, Southwest, United, US Airways and Air Canada. Some cargo carriers such as Federal Express have also offered help.
WASHINGTON -- Relief flights donated by airlines began to fly into Louis Armstrong International Airport in New Orleans at a rate of about four an hour, beginning midday Friday.

Transportation Department spokesman Greg Martin said the planes will be bringing in supplies and leaving with people. Most of the flights will take refugees to Lackland Air Force Base in Texas.

It's nice to see such corporations stepping up to the plate and offering their services to these natural disaster victims, even as their own businesses have been hurt by this disaster.

Totally agreed. It is a great thing to see people helping one another through a time of crisis even though the very people lending the help are suffering in some way themselves. Hopefully this will aid in a speedy rescue for all survivors still stuck there.

You know things are getting done cause the mayor of NO got pissed and said it how it was.

here is a link to the interview.

I can probably bet that if he didnt flame everyone higher up than him, and there was no internet so this can get out things would still be going slow as hell now..

Thank goodness for someone who has balls to get things done.

Well at least the Mayor of NO got the point
That these are all Mob negligent criminals at the head of government and the Gestapo like emergency services, who've deliberately slowed their response to this emergency
They want the deaths of thousands of poor and black and old
Its deliberation from Rumsfeld's Pentagon
A practice run of Cheney's Ordo ab Chao america
This is foremost evidence of the Bush regime's attitude towards the US population
Criminal Negligence
Washington is inhabited by criminals
A Mob
The evidence is all here to see
