How bad is the weather in NYC? Flightaware is showing a 739 diverted here to ROC, was doing LAS-EWR as Continental flight 569. I think we've gotten a 757 once in a blue moon, but other than that, this is the largest pax aircraft we've had in a really long time (sadly). We're pretty far out of the way for a diversion too... are the normal points clogged up?
P.S. Would be greatly appreciated if someone could head to the airport in the miserable weather and catch a photo of the plane. I think it's the first -900 (maybe even -900/ER, not sure what they put on that route) to ever land here.
[EDIT] Just checked CO.com, CO569 is sched. to head out of here at 5:54. It's ship 435 -- a 900/ER! I wish we got WX diversions more often
