(I did a search on this before posting, and I didn;t find anything; forgive me if it is already out here and I missed it.)

Looks like WN 87 made a stop in AMA today on its way from BUF to PHX.

Fuelstop on a full -300. Heavy fuel requirements due weather re-routes in the midwest...

I guess it must've been an equipment swap because isn't BUF-PHX normally flown with a -700?

The storms in Texas over the weekend effected our whole operation. With massive delays and cancellations at DAL and HOU planes ended up in the wrong places forcing some fuel stops. The trip I was working we had to do a fuel stop at SDF on our MDW-FLL leg yesterday. We had a full load on a 300 on a day where it was 90F at MDW. Even after the fuel stop and holding for 15 min due to T-storms we only reached the gate at FLL an hour late! Not bad considering
