Maybe each passenger can bring a quart of gas with them in their little baggie
There's a long thread about it here
It seems odd that other airlines' 757s are not similarly affected:They are. CO simply has far, far m:eek:re of these flightas. When I last looked at the stats the 4% or so diversion number was matched by AA.
Goodness knows why there's all this faux excitement about fuel stops, they have occurred to a whole range of flights over time for a whole range of reasons. I would be surprised if, over the year, more than 1% of 757 flights were so affected.
And I would MUCH rather have a stop made than the practice of some carriers, which is to think baggage carriage is somehow optional, leave the bags off to carry more fuel, not tell you until you arrive, and then wreck your trip with the lack of everything that was in there for several days.
