Inopportune airport closure

Dear Editor: As one of the first persons who found out their flight on Oct. 6 was canceled, I thought I’d write a quick note. I’m not so aggravated with the airport there in Aspen as I am with the airlines! You’d think they would have the decency to contact their passengers and tell them about it, and offer alternative arrangements. Once again, thoughtfulness and courtesy seem to have gone by the wayside. I only found out by accident and spread the word. Friends who might also be flying in on that day and not know about it until the week before certainly would have been caught at a great disadvantage.I know that work like this needs to be done before the peak ski season, so I can well understand. It just seemed to hit a day that, unknowingly, was a bit of a heavy travel day for many people concerned with flying into Aspen for the Oct. 9 [John Denver celebration] weekend.Looking forward to being in your great town soon! Kathy Kazmir Brusly, La.
