The absence of this system illustrates the backwater status of St John's. We are lagging most other major cities in services of, apparently, all types. Of particular note is the fact that the city is blanketed in fog for most of the year. This simple reality indicates the need for a "fog landing system" and I am at a loss to understand why it has taken so long for such a system to be installeed.

Response to Jezz- Yes flights can go out of Gander but the Political Will on the part of the St John's Airport Authority/ and or those responsible, is just not there to make it happen. On a clear day, every flight landing in St John's has to have an alternate landing Airport just in case of weather conditions. So guess what- never is it Gander, most likely Halifax or Goose Bay. Give me a break. Anything and everything to keep Gander down with little or no regard for the travelling public that could probably deal with the situation if in Gander but not in Goose Bay or Halifax As for the wait time for buses in Gander as mentioned by Geraldine, well not knowing for sure, that is probably because the buses were coming from St John's in the first place. God forgive using a Gander Bus and keeping the customer happy. We shouldn't complain about Air Canada, cause after all they do have the first flight in the morning into Bangeldish. Lovely, just lovely !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My husband and I were two of those passengers on Air Canada flight - that flew to Newfoundland 2 times before we got home. The last flight went to Gander and 274 passengers were stranded there for hours until a bus arrived. We were under the impression that buses and Air Canada agents would be helping us when we arrived. But this was not the case In my opinion Air Canada has little or no regard for passengers.

This system is long over due ! I here it will cut down on fog related delays by 70%.
