What a mess from IAD-BOS! The Cleveland center is a disaster too. Listening on Live ATC tells the whole story. NYC and PHL will be under the gun soon. Good luck fellow travelers.  Smile

I won't be out there till the 12th, but it will most likely be worse then anyway (now that I spoke).

I think this fits quite nicely...  Wink

(The arrival and departure delays are in minutes; the 345 minutes (5:45) at TEB are the highest I can recall seeing in awhile.. 2.5-3.5 hrs. for the NYC/PHL areas seems to increasingly be the norm when the weather becomes so widespread)

Thanks RDUDDJI, The Mets game at Shea has gone rain delayed, pouring like crazy, most of the departures at PHL have shut down their engines.

If you look at the flight track for CO 1802, you will see it made a small circle just off the coast of Long Island before continuing south. Was the circle made in hopes of getting a better route west?

Continental.com shows the planned route on their flight status page, and the flight filed to fly down the coast to JAX, then turns west and fly along I-10 all the way to TUS. Gonna be a long flight for those folks, but at least they are not sitting on the ground.

Meh, this happens every week. We will go to work tomorrow, get yelled at for cancelling flights, get everyone back on track by Sunday or Monday only to have it happen all over again middle of next week. It's a vicious cycle but I am sadly used to it by now.

I live about 15 miles from EWR.

Dark Clouds
Heavy Lightning
Swirling winds
Rapid Change in temperature
and, oh yeah, downpour conditions.

Just before the first raindrops, I saw what seemed to be a CO 737-7 flying low and fast to try to land on 22L.

At least my lawn's getting watered.  Wink

I believe that's trend inforation, i.e. "-" for delays are on the wane, and "+" for the delays are getting worse...

Yeah, today is a real mess. For some reason DFW and DAL don't show on the OIS page, but they are screwed up too. DFW had a ground stop earlier and AA is taking down their schedule with cancellations all over the place and some diversions into OKC. WN has some cancellations out of DAL. Today is just a really bad day to fly unless on the west coast.


It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems with just potatoes.

correct, however those times can vary vastly from flight to flight depending on which arrival/departure fixes are most affected.

I live near JFK, and as we were having continuous lightning all around us, pouring rain and wind that was powerful enough to topple trees, I was still hearing planes taking off!

Obviously they stopped at a certain point, but I couldn't believe what I was hearing for a while. My house is pretty much directly underneath the takeoff pattern that was in use at the time, and the storm was literally right on top of us. And it's been bad - this is not what I'd consider a "normal" storm. This is a don't-go-outside-'cause-you're-gonna-get-struck-by-lightning kind of storm, and it lasted for hours. We get storms this bad once every few years.

Had two lines next to each other on Papa and Sierra. I never saw that many heavies all together at once. They were on the ground for quite some time since ZNY wanted 30 Miles In trail for DITCH departures.

Sounds like a nightmare at PHL. I've been listening on liveATC for an hour or so and heard half a dozen or more crews time out.

25 MAH4546 : I got lucky. I was on the AA's 5.40pm DCA-MIA today. Flight delayed to 7.30PM, then we sat on the tarmac for an hour, the pilot was able to get a less
26 WJ : What's really sick about this is that this is your absolutly typical run-of-the-mill northeast summer afternoon T-storms. Welcome to the east coast...
