Fog delays Juneau flights

Posted: Thursday, October 24, 2002

JUNEAU (AP) -- Dense fog in parts of Juneau interupted Juneau flights this week.

Fog kept six of 10 Alaska Airlines flights from making it into Juneau on Tuesday and more were delayed Wednesday, the company said.

Juneau-bound flights remained in or flew on to Ketchikan, Yakutat, Sitka, Anchorage or Seattle, said airline spokesman Jack Walsh. Fog at the Seattle Tacoma International Airport also delayed at least one Seattle-to-Juneau flight Wednesday morning.

''There's a lot of people trying to get in and out of Juneau right now,'' Walsh said. The airline did not provide the number of passengers affected, but Walsh said it was ''considerable.''

Fog was particularly thick Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning.
