Diverted Flights To IAD Today!

Sun Apr 03, 2005 7:54 am

Looks like great photo opportunities today at IAD. The weather is awful at JFK and EWR, so many of the international flights are being diverted to IAD. Should see everything from a NWA 744, to a Virgin 744, to many DL 763s on the ramp for the next few hours.

Sounds like fun at IAD. IS the weather that bad at NYC? This should upset the schedules for a few airlines

Yeah JFK wasn't accepting arrivals for almost an hour due to winds/windshear. Add to that heavy rain and low vis. not a fun day at the NY Tracon/N90.

It looks like they are now taking arrivals on the 13's. JFK/LGA are Groundstopped until 2230z. EWR is GS til 2315z. EWR's GDP is already averaging 339minutes of delay. When they rerun the program after the GS, it's going to be sick...somewhere in the 400-450min range.

Yeah, looks like IAD is diversion city today.

Does anyone know why there was rescue teams around the NW747 over by Signature? They were there for a while. Very rare that a commercial flight parks on Signatures ramp area.

Our flight today was incredibly lucky - we flew CO STT-EWR, and the plane landed 20 minutes early, at 6:30 PM! I had no idea that so many diversions were taking place; they told us nothing onboard except for to expect some serious turbulence (which we did). I was wondering why EWR seemed so quiet though.

Latest from the FAA:

"Due to WEATHER, WIND, there is a Traffic Management Program in effect for "traffic arriving John F Kennedy International Airport, New York, NY (JFK). This is causing some arriving flights to be delayed an average of 6 hours and 54 minutes."

"Due to WEATHER, WIND, there is a Traffic Management Program in effect for traffic arriving La Guardia Airport, New York, NY (LGA). This is causing some arriving flights to be delayed an average of 2 hours and 52 minutes."

"Due to WEATHER, WIND, 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 4 hours and 8 minutes."

Those are current as of 2005 Central time.

AA1080, enroute PLS-JFK, diverted to IAD and was on the ground for 3.5 hours. Will psgrs be cleared customs/immigration at IAD, or do they have to stay on the plane until JFK?
If not now, then when?
