Well, I was one of the unfortunate folks to get caught up in last night's weather backups at DFW
. I was on DL
1181 from BOS
and we ended up diverting to OKC
after holding for close to an hour. We landed at OKC
just before 2100 and were there for about two hours while refueling and waiting for DFW
to open up again after the second set of cells came through. We left OKC
around 2300, made it to the gate at around 2355. I hauled serious butt from E12 to the E satellite to make it to the also-delayed flight to HOU
(my flight to IAH
had left a few minutes before). But at least I made it into Houston only 3 hours or so late. It wouldn't have been fun to get stuck at DFW
overnight, especially with Friday being a heavy travel day.
There had to have been quite a few folks sleeping in the terminal last night.
