UA is putting diverted EWR passengers onto buses and driving them up to EWR.
We're talking about 4hours driving, aren't we?
I'd easily rather be on the road on a bus than stuck on tarmac or airport terminal with no clue about when I'd be able to leave.
I'm confident many travellers boarded the buses despite all the inconvencience.
And good to hear UA quickly provided that option.[/quote]
Bingo. These diversions were happening in the evening as well, so traffic was probably lighter. Most people would probably board the bus and take the 3 and half/4 hour road trip than wait 6/7 hours for their return leg.
