ATA declares bankruptcy; Hawaii travelers left stranded

There are many places that I would not like to be stranded. Hawaii is on the list of places that I could handle. Today I heard that one of my comrades in ministry is stranded in Hawaii with his family. They had tickets with Aloha on Monday, who filed for bankruptcy and grounded the planes that same day. They took the vouchers for a hotel and were to travel on ATA. Today they woke up and learned that they were not flying with ATA either. There are no vouchers this time, though, and there are only 4 flights to CA today, which are full, plus seats are going for $900 and there are 6 of them flying. Ouch.

Not an ideal situation yet still there are worse places to be stranded!
