Why EWR Has So Many Delays In The Evening

Thu Dec 22, 2005 12:10 pm

I was on the EWR Departures screen on the Port Authority website, and I noticed Continental has a massive amount of departures between 8:30pm and 9:30pm. 41 to be exact.

Could this have any thing to do with the number of delays that EWR has.

Such tight 'hub' schedulding by one airline + many other airline flights in/out + delayed arriving flights + technical and taxi traffic delays = many delays. A lot of flights in such a tight hub time is bound to never go perfect, and domino affect other flights in/out. So I would suggest your thought is sound and a factor for your deduction.

Those are estimated (or are they actual?) times of departure, not scheduled departure times...all of Continental's departure times end in either 5 or 0...in fact, only 25 Continental flights are scheduled to leave between 8:30 and 9:30 PM (inclusive). Many of those flights you listed up there are delayed from what should be an earlier departure.
