All the traffic under Hudson team was self generated. Yes the era you speak of was exceptional, but the majority of that fell in Prestwicks lap as you say due to the conflicts in the Middle East.

I hope to god there is life in the old dog yet, but as the days, weeks and years go on, I am sadly becoming less and less convinced.
