I noticed on aa.com that AA79 today departed from LHR almost 5 hours late and then wound up landing at JFK. It now shows departing JFK at 10PM and expected to arrive at DFW after midnight. Anyone know why?

Appears due the the "tech" dealy in LHR the crew only legal to make it to JFK. Looks like the flight will re-crew at JFK and continue to DFW. Looks like passengers will clear customs/immigration in JFK.

Yeah...bad day for something like this to happen.

It looks like the departure from JFK has now been changed to tomorrow morning (11/30/09) for 10 AM. That sucks!

Does AA have scheduled flights JFK-DFW? Could at least some of the passengers be re-accommodated on one of the domestic flights, assuming there are seats available, since they cleared customs at JFK?

It's never fun to have a delay like that  Sad



Pilot: "Request push, which way should we face?" JFK Ground: "You better face the front, sir, or you'll scare the pax!"

Update:

She's leaving on AA705 LGA-DFW tomorrow at 6am.

AA only has 1 JFK-DFW flight tomorrow, at 3pm.
