"We were able to bring our systems back online and resume flights within a few hours yesterday but we are still operating in recovery mode," said Dave Holtz, senior vice president of Operations and Customer Center, in a statement.

"Recovery mode"… I can't be the only one whose imagination flashed to a huge stack of car batteries, some gasoline cans, a bunch of extension cords, and a mis-wired lightswitch with a "DON'T TURN OFF!!" post-it, right?
