Flying getting to be a hassle

George Kemper, Minot

Your recent article mentioned numerous flight delays at the Minot airport due to problems with the deicing truck. Two weeks ago when returning to Minot from Mesa, Ariz., we sat on the tarmac for an hour waiting for Delta to back out since only one of the jetways was working. These problems go beyond just congestion at our little airport. While Minot advertises for everyone to fly out of Minot, they can’t seem to handle what they already have.

However, Minot isn’t the only one with problems. It seems that flying in general has become a real hassle lately with delays, etc. no matter where you are flying out of. My advice to travelers: be ready for delays and plan on getting to where you are going early enough so your schedule will allow for these inevitable delays.
