EWR Delays.. I Dont Get It?

Fri Nov 08, 2002 4:49 am

The weather is clear and blue, so its not that. This is the message.. What does it mean???

"Due to EQUIPMENT, FREQ. PROBEMS, there is a Traffic Management Program in effect for traffic arriving Newark International Airport, Newark, NJ (EWR). This is causing some arriving flights to be delayed an average of 2 hours and 16 minutes with some arriving flights receiving as much as 3 hours and 18 minutes delay."

What on earth does that mean, cuz its a pretty substantial delay!

Gusty Winds added to the list now..

Is the wind screwing up their ATC or something?

Just because the weather is clear and blue it doesn't mean the weather is allright. There is a thing called wind, you know. Have you been outside today, it's quite windy here in the NYC area!

Anyway, looks like a combination of strong winds and traffic control facility problems at Newark.

Wind at EWR is only 15mph so where is the problem?

With delays in excess of 5 hours, there would have to be diversions I would think.
