there are two airlines - spirit and national that were offering free flights for 9/11. by the time I heard about it, all the free flights were taken. I considered taking a trip to new york to visit my brother today anyway, but I am busy at work.
I would love it if all the airlines offered free or drastically reduced cost travel every september 11th forever. making 9/11 a national travel day would be a great way to say "sit on it" to the badguys.
I'd even be willing to have some of my tax dollars go to the government subsidizing the airlines' losses from free 9/11 travel.
