Many International Flights Cancelled

Many flights to and from Honduras have been canceled due to the meteorologists strike. Local air traffic, which does not require the meteorologic services, is operating at this time. TACA airlines will not fly internationally they have stated.

Continental canceled the evening flight from Houston to San Pedro yesterday but the morning flight operated as normal. Both are scheduled to go today (one is already in the air).

Delta and American both seem to be operating normally. All flights went yesterday. Two are in the air right now and the American flight to San Pedro shows as being “on-time” for tonight.

    We here on Roatan have seen none of the pro-Mel activity that’s going on on the mainland. The problems we’ve had here in the past year were organized by Mel’s supporters on the mainland. They do not come here unless someone pays them to be here and cause trouble.
    The vast majority of Roatan residents support the democratic, constitutionally formed current government of Honduras.

    That must only changed with in the last two weeks when they were still not flying into Honduras.

    Could it be that reduced demand for seats going into Honduras is the reason for reduction in scheduled flights?

    Do not believe it is too early to predict that the current constitution will provide a vital passageway to continued freedom and economic growth.
    Obama is an inigma to both Honduras and the United States.
    Agreeing with Chavez is diabolical.

    Is it only union workers leaving their jobs in protest? If so why?

    Taca did stop flying locally awhile back due to the airport fee situation, but they cleared that up and have been flying locally again for awhile (as well as internationally). I just confirmed with Taca all flights are back on schedule and will continue as normal.

    Taca stopped flying into Honduras over 3 months ago, because they haven’t paid there Airport fees. This is bad research on the reporters behalf.
    Because that means only one flight has been canceled, not many! Get the facts straight or stop reporting!

    From the outside looking in, it seems Michelletti is fullfilling the role as is required by the constitution. Seems that all of these strikes just make the crisis more difficult for the people and business. More unrest… more turmoil = less business = less econimic activity.
    There could be a side I am not seeing, but forcing a referendum to alter the constitution is wrong. Especially if the other branches of government are opposed to it.
    I truly hope Honduras will get passed this crisis when they elect a new president. This country needs a break.

    The people are afraid. These people believe if Zelaya comes back everything is goin back to normal. We should move up the elections and let the people choose the next president. To keep both parties happy.

    I am proud of the Honduran government for defending their Constitution which defends the the right for all the taxistas, professores, to protest and express their vote. The irony, is that they do not realize that if zelaya comes to power and the Constitution is changed in the Chavez style, that right to protest will be lost unless they only repeat the party line.
    Look to Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Cuba to see what abuse of power realy looks like.
    Stand strong Honduras. Do not let outside forces push you around. Fight the lies and know that there are people spreading the truth.
    Teachers, get back to school, your students need you. Over a month away from classes, you are neglecting them, and you know it.

    I want to thank the Administrator for your excellent work of keeping us informed and for allowing us to express our oppinion. Keep up the good work!

    I am very proud of the Taxi companies, the Teacher, the Unions of Honduras, this is a proud moment for me. I am proud to be part of a country that stands for liberty and democracy for all, not only the rich, like the Michelletti bunch. The people is voicing their rights. Viva the people of Honduras!

    I will like to know if this is a strike supporting President Zelaya or if is another trap of the Michelletti, gang not to let Zelaya enter the country?

    A quick check on American Airlines flight 949, departing Miami and heading to San Pedro Sula currently shows an on-time flight schedule.

    Confirmation from other airlines is pending.
