Tuesday was burning! I don't think it really effects the airplanes that much(unless if you are AA and CO and WN) where you have maintenance bases in texas.As busy as DFW is and the fact that sometimes getting to the runway(distance) takes longer than the actual flight
seriously,I don't think it effects the aircraft that much unless if the airplane is sitting on the ground for 4 hours +.it might effect them then but if you are talking about the widebodies(KLM,Sabena,British Airways,KAL,JAL LH,AA,CO etc) i don't think it effects them that much,i think the only thing you can really do is try and get a quicker turn around(load baggage,load meals,clean airplane etc) and get the passengers on board and seated ASAP,It may not be a problem especially since IAH and DFW are pretty big airports with several runways. My question is how the ground crews handle it!
