Nothing landing right now, other flights are holding North and South of the airport, but a few have already given up and are diverting (eg AAL461).

I do know there are a lot of factors involved in a diversion, but still there are some I understand. While one AA flight is being diverted to AUS, another that was holding above AUS is now headed to MSY...

Austin gets very crowded on nights like this.

The aircraft holding over Austin diverted to New Orleans probably had more available fuel than some aircraft which will not be routed into Austin.

And going to MSY will likely get the plane back into DFW ahead of some at AUS as that airport is has to refuel more planes than normal.

At this point, it might be easier to list the planes still on hold (VRD882, NKS747 and AAL1784, with TCF6017 and JBU259 about to do the same)

Flights have diverted as far as LIT and ELP, and there's a groundstop on all flights headed for DFW until 2300z.

CPA90 an hour away from DFW. Shall we take bets on where it'll go?

WFAA is reporting two confirmed fatalities from tornados in Hood County near Granbury - about 50-55 miles southwest of DFW.

Worst cells appear to be tracking south of DFW heading west to east.

Might also mention that Southwest is also diverting a lot of flights from DAL.

Must be getting full on the ground. NKS747 held for about 30 minutes, then diverted to OKC but was re-directed to AMA en route...

New weather alert, new advisory, ground stop extended by an hour to midnight local.

There was a tornado warning for a possible tornado in some rotation in a storm cell near the airport.

The next round of storms is coming in directly upon top of the airport and to the east a couple miles they are getting hundreds of lightning strikes per hour.

What I'm seeing is a ground stop until 1201 AM Thursday -

FlightAware is just making another error in calculating the time.

EDIT - 2311 local DFW time - the airport experienced 60-70 mph shifting wind gusts within the past half hour. DAL getting those winds at this time.

An estimate 10 tornados have been spotted this evening in the area - not directly on an airport.

Well, I am guessing AA has been told to expect a reasonably quick improvement. Two diverted flights have just launched for DFW from ELP (2460) and SAT (1706) and AAL1784 that has been holding over West Texas for an hour (must have left with a lot of extra fuel) exited the hold headed for DFW too.

All at the same time, at my location, West of the airport, thunder is louder than it has been all night...

Correction: AAL1784 is going to ABI, not DFW. I guess after holding for an hour, the tank was getting low.

And Cathay didn't even wait. CPA90 can't land in DFW? Off to IAH immediately.

AAL791 (LGADFW) landed straight in. I guess the coast is clear from the North East.

Next up SKV7487, one of three flights cleared to leave their hold and land from the North West and South West. Ground stop ending now and no renewal. Perhaps we are back in business.

Not that I'm a dispatcher or anything but AA1079 RDUDFW fuel did seem a little short for thunderstorms in the area. Couldn't believe they didn't ask for more.

We have this problem every so often when NYC gets bad weather... We can easily run out of gates and places to park aircraft, so we will advise diversion elsewhere... unless its a fuel emergency of course

I was on AA1425 that diverted to MSY. Stopped to refuel and then took a long route to approach DFW from the west. Pilots anticipated a divert so we had enough fuel for MSY. Had about an hour at the gate (some passengers disembarked) and then held on the runway to be one of the first out when the ground stop was lifted.

I have a couple relatives who flew AA MBJ-DFW yesterday evening coming back from their honeymoon. They were suppose to fly DFW-STL last night but the flight was cancelled. They were trying to fly standby DFW-STL this morning but are still stuck in DFW. They are hoping to get out this afternoon.


Next flights: WN DSM-LAS-PHX, US PHX-SJD. Return: US SJD-PHX, WN PHX-MDW-DSM

My in-laws flew DSM-DFW-LAX last night. They got into DFW on time with some moderate turbulence on descent.

Their DFW-LAX (2493) was delayed an hour at the gate. My father-in-law said the winds were really strong and that the 757 was shaking all over the place while on the ground. The first hour in the air was also turbulent with the crew in jumpseats and they took a SE and then SW course for 20 minutes and then turned West.
