I suppose keeping the airport closed just for 24hrs after the 'bloodshed' of the last 8hrs is a small price to pay!! :shock:
Pakistan govt response.....'we sincerely apologize that this massacre has forced us to close the airport for 24hrs (we just need some time to remove the bodies/clean up the blood)....we will resume normal operations/life ASAP!!' :evil:
As my home airport (besides MEL), this makes me incredibly sad. I hope operations can be resumed safely and that the govt can learn from this going forward and beef up security at airports. It's the one place where I used to feel totally safe.
Very sad situation.
