Looking at today at DCA, it has been almost exclusively E70/75/90 and 737/319/320 arrivals. Do the smaller RJs have limits that are being exceeded at the moment?

My brother just called - they returned today on the DY flight from Guadaloupe to Providence. They tried to land at PVD but couldn't, couldn't land at Boston, so are now sitting on the ground at BDL waiting for immigration to be able top process them. They are working on a bus to get them all back to PVD, waiting to find out if I am driving out to BDL to pick them up.

JFK and BOS are right on the water, EWR is not. Ewr is near Newark bay and the Hudson River but not right off the ocean like those airports.


So is LGA

Nope...according to UA FLIFO, it was on the field @ IAD at 0941 and blocked on @ C19 at 0951, only 23mins. late.

Early arrival even...sched. in at 1636, ETA was 1614, on the field @ 1612, blocked-on @ 1615. Must have had good winds enroute; bet he had to use FULL reverse and pretty heavy braking landing on 33!

DCA 33 is no big deal.

The reason it's being used is because the wind is straight down the runway which today, takes away the usual excitement of using it.

DTW took multiple JFK-bound widebody diversions today. DL from BRU/MXP/ACC. Also an AA 763 from MIA.

Looking at planned departures for today and tomorrow, looks like DL will have a bunch of wide-body flights going from DTW to JFK. I count 6 flights with 763/A333 aircraft.

It’s normally no big deal and RJ’s use it frequently. But when you see the big boys using it, you know they are having a challenging day.

Normally, using 33 still requires going more or less down the Potomac (but on the east bank) then turning over Bolling to line up. Not today. Today, they had them lining up way out near Andrews for a straight shot in from many miles out. And they still had tons of go-arounds.

There may also be some backlog from yesterday’s winter weather fun at DTW. My flight out of DTW at about 1530 yesterday had quite a few misconnects and things looked to be getting worse, not better. They were down to 4R only for much of the afternoon.

At about 9:45am or so, AA canceled my 5pm flight. No more than 15 minutes later and the reservation was canceled altogether. They were gonna rebook me for tomorrow...except my return flight WAS tomorrow.

I normally can withstand turbulence, but the last time I flew on an E175 on approach to PHL, I lost it after a bit of turbulence and a rather tight turn. Needless to say I would have also grabbed for a sick bag had I flown out.

Never a dull day in aviation.

Was talking my wife through what I was watching on Flightradar. She was on a Delta 486, a 767 out of JFK scheduled for 335.

Got delayed because the FO that was on an inbound flight was diverted to another airport so they had to scramble for another.

So when they finally pushed back 2hrs and 20ish mins later they were #2 taxing to runway 31L

A Jetblue 320 was ahead of them.

A JAL 777 came in, and seemed to go long on 31L.

The 320 started rolling and aborted before it even got to Runway 4.

A few seconds later she told me that all departures were cancelled and they headed back.

What ended up happening? Did you have to go to BDL was a bus used?

This is one instance where full landing cockpit automation needs to be activated/integrated into cockpit system - I mean if the pilots are not capable of performing the landing how can the plane land safety?

When I lived in DC in the mid 90’s, 33 was used all day by DC9’s, MD 80’s, F28’s, F100’s and all the props.

AA, 172 cancelled flights today, 5% of its schedule while another 345 other flights are delayed.
B6 81 flights cancelled today or 8 % while another 32% of total flights are delayed.

Delta, only 37 flights cancelled, less than 1 % and only 8 % delayed
UA only 41 cancelled flights and 156 delayed.

What in the world was AA and B6 thinking? Didn't B6 learn anything from their very own Valentines Day Massacre?

Flew out of DCA last night on Southwest at 6pm off runway 1, with ATC reporting wind 22 gusting 58, and a Jetblue apparently unable to land being caught in wind shear on approach. Southwest didn't have any delays and it seemed like all their flights were full, maybe doing a good trade from AA problems. All in all pretty impressive!

I wonder if Southwest pilots get plenty of practice with winds and short runways at MDW.

Yeah they just have better pilots (smh)
If it’s wind shear there isn’t much of an option.
Unless it’s an advisory otherwise you are doing a wind shear escape maneuver.

I mean it's a fair point, WN operates a lot more flights to challenging fields than the US3 do, so it's pretty hard to deny that WN pilots are going to have more experience. AA and UA pilots spend their days landing time and again at ORD where if you miss the exit, just take the next one. Miss the exit at MDW and you end up on the street.

Well he was talking about DCA.
Following you logic American should be fine as they have a base there so they should know that place well.

Challenging places like LGA? BUR?

This is a silly line of comments. DCA is known for its challenging approach, and AA has a hub there.
