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.

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.
