Hope On The Horizon For Stranded Travelers At Sea-Tac
Associated Press

December 23, 2008

Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air have resumed
service at Sea-Tac airport, but at limited capacity.

The airlines are still trying to recover from four days of
disrupted or canceled flights after heavy snowfall in Seattle and

Tom Gerharter, senior vice president of Horizon Air operations,
says the airlines expect to resume full operation in Seattle by
Tuesday, if the weather continue to improve.

At Sea-Tac, spokesman Perry Cooper said stranded passengers were
given water and blankets, concession stores had adequate food for
sale, and there were no reports of temper flare-ups.

Some travelers said they had spent 12 hours waiting for a ticket
agent, taking turns sleeping while others held their places in
line. Much of the available floor space was filled with families
huddled and trying to sleep under light blue blankets. Walking
space was at a premium. The baggage claim area was littered with
mounds of unclaimed luggage 6 and 7 feet high.
