MSY: AirTran Mini Hub Tonight

Sat Dec 16, 2006 2:04 pm

FL had three aircraft on the ground here at the same time this evening...parked at gates C9, C11, and C16.

Two of them were diversions from GPT to due really poor visibility at the airport, the other was the regularly scheduled ATL turn.

The fog down here has been incredible over the past few days. And it's back again tonight. Ugh.

Do you know if the flights continued on to GPT or not? I just checked airtran.com and it shows the status of flights 1901 TPA-GPT, 1903 FLL-GPT, and 1520 ATL-GPT as canceled. If they were indeed canceled, did they bus the pax up from MSY?

Yes they did. Both planes left MSY and headed direct for FLL and TPA.

Yeah, without a doubt. The fog has been absolutely nuts the past few nights. Luckily MSY has a Cat. IIIb ILS.
