American Airlines cacelled all operations at LGA today due to a power failure at their terminal. Some flights late today were operated in/out JFK. A EWR flight AA558, was upgraded to a 777 to handle the shift of traffic.

This whole situation blows. I'm sitting right now at EWR, was supposed to fly UA from EWR-IAD-OAK; Noticed flight getting late from EWR-IAD so transferred to direct EWR-SFO. Boarded flight, but the flight was under gate hold for 1 hr, then 2 hr, then 3 1/2 hr... now evidently 80 planes sitting on tarmac waiting to head out. So, in addition to all the LGA diversions to EWR, we're having severe thunderstorms which are delaying flights > 5 h. At this rate I'll be lucky if we make it to California tonight!

AA558 (772) is coming from DFW to EWR... I bet that flight had some open seats!

Wow that's suprising! Maybe they should fly the 777 to EWR more  Wink

EWR situation unrelated to the LGA power problems. EWR delays due to big storms in the N90/ZNY airspace. Departure delays at EWR regularly reach 180 mins. in these situations.

BIG storm here in the tri-state area. Lots of thunder, lighting, and periods of rain for the past hour or so. Not at all unusual for the season though...

Not only are LGA and EWR a mess - so is JFK.

Most people on a.net hate JetBlue. Get used to it.

The ATC Zero situation at ZLA might also be contributing to delays.
