Those checks were complete by Thursday, so flight schedules were back to normal by the weekend.

Thanks Jason ... I was a couple of days late. Just catching up on things because of being laid up in bed.

Hope all's well with you, and the SJs are treating you well.

I forgot to add that it's incidents like this that remind me that I'm glad I don't work for the airlines anymore. It's embarrassing for the employee, and no explanation is sufficient for many customers.
