Are there ever diversions from JFK to anywhere in Upstate NY other than Stewart? Rochester and Buffalo are well-positioned to receive inbound Pacific flights, but I never remember having seen or heard of one.

SYR and BUF took a bunch of domestic inbounds for AA, UA and DL last night. I didn't see any go into ROC though.

HP sent their diverts to BWI.
CO sent theirs to CLE and ORF.
B6 sent theirs to IAD (no surprise there).
NW wound up with two diversions at ABE.

US was lucky enough that their inbounds were on groundholds so they never even got off the ground.

I also saw a couple diversions listed to RIC, PVD and ORD (UA transcon LAX-JFK).

Ironically, the first arrival after reopening was the Avianca from Bogota. I guess no one wanted to take any chances with their fuel situation!!!

Got back to IAD after a day trip to PAE and saw AA 777, AA AB6, CO 757, LA 763 and more UA 762s than usual. SU 763 was pushing back when we arrived so maybe it was going back to JFK ? The777Man

RE: CX888/02Aug

The registration for this acft is B-HOR. YYZCX Ops received possible diversion at around 9pm EST. At 9:45pm, CX888 began her way to YYZ from JFK. B-HOR safely landed at around 10:30pm (almost the same time as CX828/HKG/ANC/YYZ). B-HOR parked at the cargo infield area, which is far from the terminals, for refueling and regular technical checks. CX888 took-off at 12:35am from YYZ to JFK. No pax offloaded in the case.

Too bad, if CX888 parked beside CX828 at the same time, this could be historical here at YYZ. Too bad, it parked very far from the terminals.

My B6 flight from LGB-JFK was diverted to BUF. Just for fuel, no one got off. jetBlue gave all passengers a 50.00 travel credit for the inconvenience. Pretty nice of them considering it was a weather problem that they had no control over.

That was one WICKED storm. I was spotting on the Belt Parkway (ok, ok, stuck in trafic) and the aircraft comming in where on a SERIOUS crosswind.
