IAH is currently experiencing a fierce thunderstorm that passed through our area a while back with high winds and lots of lighting. Here at BPT we are starting to get mostly Express Jets. Just heard CO 827 from San Salvador heading to Austin. This shoulld get interesting as most of the heavies are due in soon. Be on the lookout for them. Seems like most are due to low fuel while holding.

I count at least 30 planes holding at this moment, with more coming, but the good news is that they are now letting in the ones holding just to the east of IAH start their approach.

Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun.

As of 2156Z (1656 CDT), it looks like they are squeeking a few into IAH. CHP504 and COA1453 just landed at IAH. Right now I see a bunch of flights on arrival in various holding patterns. They include:


BTA2056, BTA2014 just diverted to CLL
BTA2611 just diverted to AIX
COA1075, COA121 just diverted to MSY
BTA3213 just diverted to ACT
COA1508 just diverted to SAT
BTA3214 just diverted to AUS

Everything else is too far out and hasn't started the arrival, so I am sure ATC has them all slowed up.

OH MAN! I wish I had seen that big girl come into AUS. I live out west though, so I probably wouldn't have, but what do they do with that plane? Do they just sit it on the tarmac? Especially because its an international flight, thats all I can imagine, because AUS' customs has 2 stations (for charter flights to CUN and CZM, but YYZ before as well), and could not clear everyone in any timely manner, nor are any jetbridges equipped to handle that sized plane.

You sit. You are not officially in the US as a pax, but in transit, so they would need to clear you in IAH unless there was an emergency. A weather/fuel diversion is not an emergency.

Had this happen on AA NRT-DFW. DFW/IAH/AUS/SAT were closed and we flew to DEN, then after refueling, DEN closed, and we were stuck for about 4 hours total there. Couldn't deplane despite DEN being able to handle us, as it wasn't our port of debarkation.

Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.
