For all you UA lovers and haters, DEN is closed today and UA has cancelled most of their flights in and out. How much is this going to cost the Company, and how much is going to be passed to us, the employees?


I love the rumble of a 727 takeoff in the morning!

Why single out UA?? Frontier has ALL its operations in Denver and is similarly adversely affected. At least UA has a broader network and other hubs to route passengers in and out of.

In annual budgeting, airlines make plans for a number of bad weather days and associated costs. Denver has had very few this year. Today's cancellations will be well within UA's plans and budget.

Here at AWAC this has affected us somewhat, but our DEN operation is somewhat limited, so it hasnt hit us too hard. One thing to note though. Because of DEN, we ran two BAe-146s in revenue service non-stop from ASE-ORD. Very fun stuff.

Allegiant has cancelled its charter operations for Apple out of DEN today because of the storm. The FNL and COS trips are also in danger of being cancelled.

I wouldn't say its closed. ID BE CAREFUL SAYING AN AIRPORT IS CLOSED. Tecnically they dont often close, they just don't except flights. There are flights arriving at DIA right now! Im tracking a few flights landing at DIA. I majority of planes have been diverted, returned to origin or not left at all. To name a few.

UA 36: returned to SFO
UA 44 HNL-DEN diverted to SLC
AC 1039 returned to YYZ
UA 1423 MCO-DEN diverted

This of course is just a a few.

I am visiting family in Denver right now and have been watching local news coverage of the storm. They just showed a live report from DIA and the airport is not "closed". However, no flights will depart before 5:00pm but they are allowing some flights to land, according to the report.
The weather here is nasty to say the least. Here in Douglas County, (just south of Denver) we already have 10 inches on the ground and they are saying on the news that it will continue to snow for 14 more hours! I am not optimistic about catching my flight home to Hawaii tomorrow.

Aloha,

Airlines, TV, and websites might say it's closed (and for all practical purposes, it is) but an airport isn't officially closed until the entity that operates the airport has FAA issue a NOTAM that says the airport is closed.

We see a similar misuse of the term when it's foggy out. The airport goes below landing minimums, and flights can't get in, and we start diverting them. Someone (TV, whoever) starts in with the "airport is closed" bit, when it's just below minimums. If the RVR had been fluctuating right at minimums, some flights will get in, and some won't, but the public thinks -nobody- is getting in since the TV incorrectly said the airport was "closed."

DEN is not closed, but all passenger flight departures have been cancelled until at least 5:00 pm MDT. A plane can still take off and land at DEN, but the individual airlines decided to suspend operations until weather conditions improve.

By the way, the weather is as bad as the press is reporting. I can't see more than 1/4 of a mile from where I live in east Denver.

When I went onto jetBlue.com (My homepage) I looked at the weather advisory and it said flights involving Denver were delayed 8 hours due to snow I had a good laugh because it is in the 70's in NY. My cousin lives in Denver so I will talk to her to see how bad it is, sounds bad from you guys.
Let's say basically no one is leaving DEN today. Not many people will get their either.

8 hours,lol

It is really bad here. The one road leading into DIA (Pena Blvd.) was treacherous according to others who came in during the storm. Cars spun out... and visibility hasn't been great either.

The crew lounge here is full of FA's and pilots just waiting for things to let up, me being one of them!  Smile I hope it stops soon....

Cheers!

The roads are pretty crazy here. The airport is open, and the runways are aparently clear ( I just saw a pic on TV), but the carriers can't keep the planes de-iced. So nothing taking off until 5:00pm MST>

They are unable to de-ice at the moment, too. So, I don't think anything is getting out if it DOES get in.

well, here in BOI, F9 Jet express left at 0700 on time, and UA at 0753 and 0950 and all day were cancelled.
F9 Jet Express had their originating OMA-DEN flight divert to GJT, then flew onto BOI. I never would have considered us a DEN alt. Maybe QX was having that plane fly DEN-BOI and was trading out with a QX operated routed plane anyway.
I was talking to an F9 employee going to Nuggets game Sat and jokingly said will it be 70 degrees or a foot of snow? Didn't realize they were going to get a lot of snow. Anyway, they didn't make it back home on Sun!

Wests ide of COS isn't bad at all, the parking lot isn't even covered. However up in Woodland Park (where I work) is supposedly 1-2 feet of snow.

The interstates and highways out of town are all closed (I-25 springs to castle rock, pueblo to the NM border, US-83, US-24 east to Limon. The airport though is still open.
