I flew out of LHR on a red-eye flight last night. Aeroflot's A321 LHR-SVO. Just hours before this whole mess began. I consider myself very lucky, it was perfect timing. However my dad is stranded in London He was supposed to take a BA flight to DME in the morning but both DME flights were already cancelled by 7 am. BA told him it will be days before he gets to fly out, and so far has re-booked him on a Sunday morning flight.

Well....I was supposed to fly MSP-LGW on NWA today, but due to all of the hassles, security concerns and labor issues, we decided it just wasn't worth the 10 day trip to visit family. I hope the issues are resolved soon and I thank all of those who helped foil the plot. It could have been an ugly weekend for aviation had this gone through. Also, Delta was a big help in re-crediting the miles back to my account, so good job Delta!! I hope everyone has a pleasent and safe travel this weekend.
Now...I need to get on one more DC-10 before they all go. Hmmm...

I was due to travel SK TLL-ARN-LHR today, and return Sunday SK/OV LHR-CPH-TLL. When I showed up at TLL, flights to LHR that had not yet left the ground were not cleared for departure. The "New information at.." update would come 20 minutes before I landed at ARN. The risk was that the ARN-LHR flight gets massively delayed or cancelled, in which case I'm on my own for sleeping arrangements that night at ARN.
So I decided all the hassle and uncertainty wasn't worth it and chose to take a full refund on my ticket (normally not allowed on my fare class, but allowed this time due to the special situation). In the end, my particular ARN-LHR flight did depart, a few minutes late. I think SK was happy to do the refund, as they had 2-3 plane loads of people whose ARN-LHR flight was cancelled eariler that day sitting in ARN quite eager to get to LHR!
