RE: AA Adds 777 Morning Flight JFK - LHR For Tomorrow

I just saw a headline stating that 70,000 people are stranded at Heathrow, and this thread is about one extra 777 in each direction to/from JFK? Am I missing something here?

RE: Rejected...Please Help...

The conditions you faced were far from ideal, and bringing that image up to snuff may not be possible. If you still have access to the airplane why not just shoot it again on a better (sunny) day?
