It looks like they'll be arriving in a few minutes, but nearly 4 hours late. I bet there are some stressed folks on that plane. If they're getting cars on STT and trying to catch the car barge they'll want to hustle pretty quickly.

Just glad it looks like they're making it safely. My first trip to STT, we had to make an emergency landing in Charlotte...we ended up in St Thomas a day late. Wasn't fun, but won't ever forget it either!

Hope they're all able to relax and have a great vacation...

Two years ago when trying to land in STT, the pilot had to abort twice due to wind shear. He was only allowed a third try before having to divert to PR, with the potential of not having enough fuel. Our daughter and boyfriend were with us on the plan. It was her garduation from college celebration and it was one of the most anxiety producing experiences that any of us have ever gone through. You could have heard a pin drop each time the pilot attempted to make it up each time over the mountain at the end of the run way. In 18 years we had never had such a difficult landing...they handed out extra rum drinks at the terminal and the flight attendants reported that they were heading straight to a local bar. I felt as if I was goint to have total melt down. Last year my husband and I went through the same experience......we are headed back in two weeks. What is it about the STJ experience that just over rides all challenges to get there?
