  •  Landing at Elmendorf (0+ / 0-)

    Anchorage never struck me as being that busy. Seems like it would have been a good choice.

    I was once on an Alaska Airlines flight that didn't seem to have a problem landing at Elmendorf instead of Anchorage due to weather (I think the Cat III runway lights raised the local temperature 10 degrees.) Anyway, the Anchorage passengers eventually got on a bus, and the rest of us waited a long time for refueling, since they wouldn't let the plane taxi to the ramp. The Alaska pilot said, "It happens all the time in the winter." Seems like turnabout would have been fair play in your case.
