Halifax/Moncton...what's Going On?

Sun Jul 03, 2005 4:09 am

Is there something happening up there? A Condor 767-300 from Frankfurt went (supposedly) to Halifax, then to Moncton, then to Bangor, Maine. Huh? Are there some troubles up there...diversions of some sort?

Runway and ILS upgrades plus very thick fog means no flights in or out.

Other flights didn't fare better. Zoom airlines flight from Gatwick was diverted to Moncton, pax had to wait three hours for customs agents to show up (Moncton does not normally take international flights), and then pax are bussed to YHZ.

AC canceled many flights today and yesterday, they're flying a 767 from YHZ to YUL tomorrow to clear some of the back-log, instead of the usual A320 or CRJ-200.
