Was funny to see the homepage of yahoo have this story twice... one headline 57 flights the other 64, and the stories were right next to eachother too.

I was really glad to see that "flights currently in the air are OK and can land."

So, a sharp pencil boy (accountant) is sitting in his office, his 401K just got killed this week on Wall St., he notices fuel prices have jumped twenty cents, and the load factor is below the red line.

He pushes the glitch button because it consolidates light loads and saves the company a few million. The board sends a fruit basket, and the CEO gives a kiss on the lips. What could be nicer?
