driving back from the city this evening, around 6 i noticed planes staying pretty low after takeoff probably around 2000-3000 feet as far north as route 3 near TEB. i dont know if its related, but i dont think i've ever seen departures like that before.

The airport's website does say their is an emergency since 7:55 pm, with ground holds. Some CO and other airline's flights have been diverted to ABE and PHL. There is also weather problems at BOS (2 1/2 hours!), other reasons at LGA and other airports.

I don't know about an a/c emergency but that has been on the OIS page for HOURS now.

There were 2 CO diversions due to excessive holding from the south. pretty typical when EWR is on the 4's. I don't know why EWR has been on the 4's all night (some hours with a tailwind) when the 22's give us a better rate.

I don't know specifics but it could be to keep pushing tin as when EWR is on the 4's it conflicts with westbound LGA departures. Keeping them low keeps the flow going from both LGA and EWR.

It's annoying with fuel the way it is that we have 80-90 min out to off times and holding south of DC in VFR weather!
