So I just got the email from Delta reminding me I could now check in for my flight.

Wednesday, March 5

Flight: Delta 514
Departs: 12:40 pm from Atlanta, Georgia
Arrives: 3:04 pm at Laguardia, New York
Seats:
Gate: XLD

Anyone know what XLD means? It looks ominously like Cancelled!

Yes, you are correct. The flight is cancelled. Good time to call and rebook!

We know for you it's not just a seat on a flight to a place. It's a seat on a flight to your life.

The flight in question is NOT cancelled. Your flight is on 05Mar, tomorrow. Flight 514 on 04Mar (today) has indeed been cancelled. However, the system cannot show more than one departure gate assignment for the same flight on different days....check back later, your gate will be updated.

Unfortunately a lot of DL flights will be cancelled today due to the weather.

Ugh. If it is cancelled, then why would they send an email saying I can check in? And also not automatically rebook?

Hmm... It shows gate assignments for all of the other flights to LGA tomorrow. For 514 specifically, delta.com says it's on time (green box) but gate is XLD.

Mgold07's explanation is on point. you would have already been notified if your flight was cancelled.

Gates are always off when I check in online the day before on delta.com. I've come to the point now where I just check the monitors at each airport I go through since I've had countless B25ish gate assignments changed to A7ish, etc.

Yeah true. It let me check in online (still says Gate: XLD though). But it won't let me change seats - which is interesting.
