Default Re: Hawaii's Interisland Air War - Chapter 5

Everybody thinks this is really funny but how much fuel do you think an inter-island flight carries? Especially a MESA Airlines inter-island flight? If they slept for another 15 minutes this would have been a much different story.

FAA regs are to carry enough fuel to reach the destination plus 30 minutes extra that's it. You can be sure Mesa doesn't give those poor pilots a drop more than minimum!
