Lately I have been watching the status of flight 94 from JFK-MAD because I will be flying it next week. When I bought my ticket it was originally supposed to be a B757 (making an uncomfortable flight) but in the last few days, AA has upgraded it to a B763. Also, FlightAware.com shows that it has been delayed, diverted, and canceled. Are these still due to the volcano, or are they just random occurrences, such as a late passenger? From which route would this plane be utilized?

United actually did the opposite. They are canceling some lighter load flights to cities where they have many flights (LHR & FRA) so that they can catch up and not operate every flight with a 1-5 hour delay. There have been so many delays because of the ash and the diversions that the schedule has not been able to fully recover.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Quoting Arzenal (Reply 3): I gotta tell you guys, flying from the USA to London SUCKS right now.
My sister was scheduled to fly DL 11 LGW-ATL and then on to LAX this past Tuesday. She boarded about 5 1/2 hours late, sat on the ground for about 2 hours and finally took off. It took 10h 15 min to fly to ATL and the gate agents were swamped with rebookings and hotel rooms for misconnects. Super crazy!

Quoting Arzenal (Reply 3): was on UA928 on Tuesday night, and the flight from ORD-LHR took just over 8 hours.
Just be grateful you weren't on VS's MAN-MCO flight one day last week, the flight plans showed a flight time of 13 hours! That's what can only be described as hell, 13 hours on a plane load of screaming kids! lol
