Bad weather moved through ATL today, causing a diversions.
Please post any diversions you know of. And passenger experiences. (I'm curious what exactly happens when a flight is diverted) Are the passengers allowed to get off? What about food..bathroom usage? Vouchers?

I noticed the following flights diverted down to PNS, originally headed for ATL:
DL 1504 SAT-ATL MD-88
DL 0628 DFW-ATL MD-88
DL1778 SAN-ATL 752

This all depends on the airline, and even the situation. There's way too many "ifs" to even begin to spell it out.

Quoting Pensacolaguy (Thread starter):
Are the passengers allowed to get off?

Depends on airline, gate availability, international/domestic, room in the terminal, length of time on the ground for weather diversions as are these today from ATL.

We were on an extended delay, first to T/O from MDW, then diverted to BOS to refuel for additional holding (where a couple of people were allowed off for religious reasons), then on to LGA. BOS just happened to be one of our stations at the time and had the gate availability. It was weather in LGA holding us up. We were probably 5-6 hours late when it was all said and done.

Quoting Pensacolaguy (Thread starter):
What about food

Whatever is on the plane. We would serve water if on the ground for a long time. The carts are not allowed in the aisles while on the ground as they block assess to exits. Anything more that just water was problematic. WN doesn't use carts, but we did and were used to them. Again, depends on above factors. Unless it is a regular catering station for the airline, it's difficult to arrange something at a moments notice.

Quoting Pensacolaguy (Thread starter):
bathroom usage

Once the plane was blocked-in, we used to let people use it once the captain cleared it. It's up to the airline, but when you gotta go...

Quoting Pensacolaguy (Thread starter):
Vouchers?

No one deserves a voucher for a weather delay/diversion. Some airlines may do it, but you still don't deserve it.

The only other diversion I had was a bird strike out of MDW going to CLT. We diverted to IND, changed planes and were maybe delayed 1 1/2 hours. Seems like it was less time than that, certainly no more. IND was an excellent diversion point for us at TZ, at the time. I don't think anyone got vouchers. It was up to the gate agents. Though a slight inconvenience, nothing that deserved compensation. ATA didn't routinely schedule birds to fly into their engines.

Were coming up on thunderstorm season for IAH, and we see lots of diversions here in CRP. The procedure here is usually "gas and go" and not let the pax off. However sometimes it does become a requirement to let the pax off. We tend to get mostly BTA/COEX diversions here, and a few CO mainlines. The rest head up to SAT and AUS when coming up from Mexico or from the west.
