This from Tom Spurgeon, the well-respected creator of the Comics Reporter blog, which you should read each morning, every morning: people who have purchased air tickets through ATA Airlines may be out of luck.
If you hadn't heard already, this is a smallish airline that just declared bankruptcy on Wednesday, and it sounds like there is little recourse for ticket-holders. I only mention it in case you did buy ATA tickets already and haven't heard the news yet. I'd heard on NPR that there's little chance of getting refunds, unless your credit card company is good about that, etc. ATA has clearly shut the door on that idea. Crazy, no?
Also, while I'm on the subject of travel, tickets, et cetera: We're receiving a lot of increasingly strident questions about when our Westin host hotel rate will go "live". I'm informed by Shelton that it looks like it is just over the horizon, possibly as early as next week. When it goes live for reservations by HeroesCon attendees, I'll announce it through a special edition of the Heroes Hotline newsletter, so make sure you're on that list!
