KEF: due to weather conditions all FI and WW inbounds from US massively delayed this morning

Tue Jan 09, 2018 7:31 am

A view on FR 24 shows all flights of Icelandair and WOW Air from USA / Canada incoming with a approx. delay of 3 to 4 hours because of very bad weather conditions this morning. All local flights from REK are also delayed or cancelled.

WOW seems to be more affected than ICE. DAL from JFK also has a 3 hour delay. Well bad luck I guess some missed conections.

The European flights will wait for the arriving flights. Not only do they not want passengers stuck in Keflavík, but they also need the arriving frames.

Big mess and havoc for both, but mostly for WOW and their tight schedules...wonder how and when they will come back to their regulary schedule again

There's a central storm system just to the SW of KEF with pressure down to 944mb giving near-50knot winds from the SE at present. This is due to fill rapidly and winds ease quickly down this afternoon.

I would assume that this weather front is affecting others, beyond FI and WOW, no??
