This whole situation blows. I'm sitting right now at EWR, was supposed to fly UA from EWR-IAD-OAK; Noticed flight getting late from EWR-IAD so transferred to direct EWR-SFO. Boarded flight, but the flight was under gate hold for 1 hr, then 2 hr, then 3 1/2 hr... now evidently 80 planes sitting on tarmac waiting to head out. So, in addition to all the LGA diversions to EWR, we're having severe thunderstorms which are delaying flights > 5 h. At this rate I'll be lucky if we make it to California tonight!
