Private Jet Needed

The recent restrictions in air travel (due to the increased terrorist threat) happened two days after we purchased a ticket for my wife to fly from Denver to Phoenix. (We will both be there for my fall sabbatical from Denver Seminary.) It is very questionable whether Rebecca could handle a flight without any liquids, due to her medical problems. An extra long wait in the mold-hell of DIA is not high on her list of enjoyable activities either. So, she may need to drive out to Phoenix with me, which poses another (huge) set of problems.

So, on our walk tonight we came up with a simple solution. If anyone out there has a private jet and can fly Rebecca from Denver to Phoenix (for free, of course), please let us know as soon as possible.

All in all, "We walk by faith and not by sight." But what is the faithful thing to do on this one?

I fly out of Denver on Sunday. I'll let you guys know how it is. It may be calmed down by the time Becca needs to leave if there are no further incidents.
You're both in my prayers,

Northwest Airlines website says that they will be providing bottled water for their "passengers needs". I'd assume all the airlines will do something similar. Does your wife have to have something besides water or would that be enough?

Dr. Truth,
I'll see if I can get the Air Force involved. Maybe we can charter a C-5 to do a special ops airlift to zona.

Since the private plane did not materialize, we fall back on private prayer for the Frontier Airlines trip.

One thing to do is let the airline know of any special medical needs. Get a note from your physician explaining, and carry it along.

Thanks, but Frontier says even a doc's note will not allow water taken on the plane!

The airline will supply water -- if its the purity of the water that concerns you, hie over to REI (if there's not one in Denver there's some sort of outdoor retail store of a similar sort) and get an osmotic water purifier. You can purify the water the airline gives you.

When I was flying several times a week, I learned to love club soda with lime. I'd know I'd flown a route too many times when I'd get it without having to tell the attendant what I wanted.

Looking for a Private Jet, I would suggest you to choose the right private jet which is 247 Jet for all your private needs. They are more reliable and secured too.
