Anxious about props?

Last week, a friend made her way to a small Virginia airport only to find that she was booked on a turboprop rather than a jet. Since her usual three shots of whiskey were prohibited in carry on luggage, she began to get nervous about the flight. A year ago she had a harrowing experience aboard a commercial propeller-driven plane and vowed never to fly a prop again.

Fortunately, her flight was delayed and she was able to ask a gate agent to rebook her using a different route – and a jet plane. Apparently, if a flight is delayed, agents can rebook passengers using different routes.

Who was this, and what was the nature of this "harrowing experience"?

I imagine this was someone flying out of Roanoke, correct? I hadn't thought about the new restrictions stopping people from bringing mini-bottles on flights, but that's right, it does! And a lot of people used to do that. I wonder if they're still trying to sneak them on? Patrick's a big fan of the mini-bottles.
