Hello all,
With the major disruptions going on in Europe that has pretty much brought a halt to air traffic, I wonder how many airlines have their aircrafts grounded at a destination airport due to it. I'm sure North American and Asian carriers all have some aircrafts grounded in Europe and probably vice versa with European aircrafts stuck away from home.
It could probably make for some good photo opportunities   Imagine having BA, LH and KL still sitting around at ACC during the day.

At PHL, a wingletted Delta 757-200 that normally operates DL 196/197 PHL-CDG is parked over by the old overseas terminal alongside runway 17/35. Didn't wander over to A-West to see if there were any BA or LH planes idling over there though. US seems to be idling most of the widebodies in Philly, presumably to support a quick restart of service. It does look like US got some of its southern European service in today, though (e.g., MAD, FCO) as well as TLV.

Also one Swiss A343 in DAR parked in a remote stand when they usually use a gate.......don´t know if Swiss plane depart after I left

They can do that flights flying more to the South in the atlantic and flying over north spain to Italy and the middle east....

What about flight from middle east to USA, Canada like EK, QR....????

On my way home from work at the ATL airport as we passed by the International terminal I noticed a A340 of LH sitting Idle. I saw KLM but admittedly it was there during the normal time it would be in ATL.

Drove byYYZ earlier today. Saw:

OS 767
LH A330 (might have been an A343)

These 2 are parked close to the East Satelite terminal

LO 767
KL 747
AF ?? couldn't tell the aircraft.

There are in the midfield area...along with a SkyService B757

Would have expected to see a BA plane, but maybe they got out in time.

SN has several planes all over Europe & probably also Africa that can't return.
