Who had the pleasure of dealing with NYC yesterday morning?? I diverted 2 LGA flights since the floor dropped out from under their "forecast" at time of dispatch. :bang:Who saw that coming? Heard on the ATC sidebar conference call that at 12:30pm LGA had 55 diversions to deal with. YIKES! :eek2:Glad I wasn't traveling there this morning.

We had a great time going to JFK yesterday. Alternate was IAD, so we were weight restricted. Then they tried to put on 68 bags, that of course didn't work. Then they decided to remove some bags of people who missed the flight, which of course involved removing everything from the cargo bin again.
PHL is a mess today, but the NY Met airports are also a dogpile. DFW completely failed at keeping up with the ice from days ago, and now it's a half foot thick everywhere and it refroze solid, so they've essentially had to chip the airport out. The city of Dallas et al pretty much epically failed at being prepared for the weather, in spite of having several days warning that it was coming.
