Flight Two’s passengers are exiting from the First Class Jetway at Gate 33.

“A wheelchair!” calls Mel, locking the Jetway door open. Sarah leans over the railing to talk to Stewardess Maria.

“I’m Mrs. Demerest,” says Sarah. “Is the Captain–”

“He’ll be coming off the Tourist Jetway,” replies Maria. Maria grabs a wheelchair and heads back down the Jetway.

Mel turns around and looks at the approaching crowd. “All right, now, move back!” He turns to Ned. “Ned, get these people over there.”

Ned wades into the crowd. “Step back, alright step back. Those of you who are not helping,  please step back,” he says.

Meanwhile Tanya is directing passengers to the central area of Gate 33.

Harry rushes to the Tourist Jetway. “Judy!” he shouts, seeing his niece. He hugs her as the other passengers deplane. Schuyler walks into the terminal, spilling a pile of textbooks on the floor. Behind him, Ada looks around, still wearing the fur coat that covered her on the plane.

Mrs. Donovan steps forward. “Oh I’m sorry, ” says Mrs. Donovan, “but that’s my coat!”

Ada looks at her as Mr. Donovan removes the coat from Ada’s shoulders. “I’m sorry, too.”

The police have set up a velvet rope line for crowd control. Inez walks up to the rope, while looking at the debarking passengers.
