I heard about the deaths earlier. Sorry you had to wait so long. Unfortunately very inconvenient but out of Carnival's control with the FBI in charge.
DavidB, if I understand correctly, they flew in and arrived at 8:30am but ate breakfast at 4:30 am at homebase BEFORE their flight and they were starving. We usually eat light in the morning before boarding too because we know we can eat lunch around 1pm. Unfortunately, this was not the case for them. I really feel bad for the elderly in wheelchairs in the rain. I wonder why the FBI wouldn't let them in the Terminal knowing it was raining.
