JFK and there is nothing going on. There is a Tier One Ground stop to JFK though at the moment.
There is plenty of room for Gods animals, right next to the mashed potatoes!

Any updates on this? I can't seem to find anything on this on the news. Also what a/c and/or registration is it? Interesting if it turned out to be a 777 which seems to been a problematic type for El Al over the past month or two...

Nothing on the OIS about that - only thing is about an hour's worth of departure delays.

Quoting IAHFLYER ( Reply 1): Quoting Fahadmk (Thread starter):
As of right now they have shut down all departures out of JFK .
El Al or everybody, and if the latter...
The reason that airports shut down is for safety.
If all the emergency equipment is at one location of the airport dealing with an emergency - they have a very poor capacity to respond to a second emergency quickly.
Airports are very aware of the impact of such a decision on the flow of traffic.
Airports work very hard to get as much of the necessary emergency equipment and personnel back into position so operations can be resumed quickly.
But no one in the airlines or flight crews complains - because they know very well that they might need that all the equipment some day.

The aircraft experienced an engine surge and aborted the takeoff. It is currently AOG at
JFK, but a replacement engine is due to be flown-in today.
