On Tuesday Big Bob Wilonsky reported what seemed a crafty bit of gamesmanship on SW’s part. Stop and Think organized a press conference outside to emphasize how loud SW’s jets are. But all was quiet during the event, leading SAT folks to claim that SW diverted its planes during the press conference. Not so, a SW spokesman told Wilonsky. Just coincidence.
But this morning the Star-Telegram (and the FAA) beg to differ.
Update: From a SATer:
That was a Committee to Protect Our Children press conference, not a Stop and Think one. Ours was held May 3, and there was plenty of air traffic overhead.
