Planes crashing into the World Trade Center are images that will be never be forgotten. But slowly Americans and South Georgians started flying again after September 11th
The 10:40 departure at Southwest Georgia Regional Airport was full, but it seems airline officials weren't sure how many people would want to be flying around September 11th this year.
"Reservations have been real soft," ASA Director Lacey Touchton said."People just staying at home I guess."
So few people are willing to fly, ASA has cut its flight schedule in half on September 10th, 11th, and 12th. The 10:40 a.m. and 4:55 p.m. departures cancelled, as are the 9:50 a.m. and 4:20 p.m. arrivals.
A decision gathering mixed reactions among travelers at Albany's Southwest Georgia Regional Airport.
"Better to be cautious about it, than be sorry if something happens later," Luverne Mott said.
"I will still fly that day, especially if giving free flights, not concerned about what happens," Albert Abonga said.
The only free flights we've seen so far, Spirit Air, but still there are some you couldn't even pay to get on an airplane that day.
"I would be frightened because of what happened that day, wouldn't resort to flying," Chelsea Fortson said.
That's why ASA and other airlines are deciding they'll save money those days by keeping as many planes on the ground as possible.
If you want to fly on September 10th, 11th or 12th here are the departures out of Albany. There's one leaving at 6:15 in the morning, and another at 1:55 in the afternoon.
