Running around like Tattoo on Fantasy Island, they've trumpeted the fact that they finally got a new airline to service Port Angeles. Surely you remember that run of stories in the PDN back in October? "The plane! The plane!"
No contract? Then no contact. You can board
at gate number none.
Only...OOPS! There is no airline servicing Port Angeles Fairchild Logyard Airport. SeaPort was "set to begin" regular service there on March 1st, only, well...They don't have enough pilots. Oh, and they're completely cancelling services in other states, including the bonanza market that is California. Somehow I don't think they're cancelling services in a huge place like California to, you know, really free themselves up to focus in on their opportunities in Port Angeles.
Especially since, OOPS, if you read a little more, you'll see that the Port didn't actually have a contract with SeaPort yet. As in, uh, no contract. As in, no done deal. Yet, there the Port was back in October, announcing "The plane! The plane!" But apparently the Port is still in the process of "negotiating a facilities lease."
It seems obvious that some of the really fine, fine folks down at the Port believe that you can fly people to SeaTac if you just generate enough hot air. Well, as we've now learned, that is not the case. Better start flapping really hard, Mr. Hallett. Maybe that'll work, you big, stupid turkeys.
Meanwhile, if you want to get out of Port Angeles, it'll have to be by land or by sea.
No, no, Tattoo. I've told you a million times!
It's DUH plane, DUH!
