    That doesn't sound very nice :( But of course - if they get their tickets refunded, it was probably worth it for some of the passengers ;-)

    While it is a slight inconvenience (well, maybe a major one for some) I would LOVE an unscheduled paid-for-by-the-airline stop in Anchorage! :D

    Well, at least it wasn't as crappy a flight as it could have been.

    If they hadn't all given a crap, would the flug need to have rerouted?

    Inquiring minds (don't) want to know.

    I can't find the post on TOBB at the moment, but one of the comments there said that there really is a problem with the 777 lavs; if one goes out of service, they all will.
