There is a mercifully small airline that serves
the Moluccas in East Indonesia. The official name
is Indoavia, but its stranded ticketholders
know it better as Indoalibi.

I'm from Juneau, Alaska, and weather conditions are often very bad for air
traffic. Juneau has been served by Alaska Airlines for a number of years,
and Alaska pilots are usually pretty daring when it comes to landing in iffy
weather. Recently, Delta added service to our community, but were very, very
timid about landing in marginal conditions. Often they would overfly to
Anchorage when Alaska Airlines was keeping its schedule. Alaska airlines
employees then thought up the following funny acronym:
