Exactly. The questions are: 1) how many days each year will enough suitable airports be available to permit crossing the Arctic without unacceptable detours, and 2) given however many days per year that is, can a carrier make money on the route, given the cost of an added stop on the days when bad weather requires it. This is quite speculative, and there is plenty of room for disagreement. M Carling -- Microsoft Network is prohibited from reproducing this work, in whole or in part. Copyright 1997, M Carling.
