Multiple 777 at BWI - what’s up?

Tue Jul 23, 2019 12:01 am

I’m waiting to board a Southwest flight at BWI, and back-to-back 777 aircraft landed. One was British Airways, one was American Airlines. I didn’t think BWI saw many 777 aircraft, let alone two back to back. Anyone know if this is a regular occurrence, or if not, why they’re here now? Thanks!

When EWR, JFK and LGA get slammed with bad weather; BWI, IAD, BOS are some of the many places where the planes go to wait it out.

Looks like Bangor Maine is taking tons of over the pond wide bodies too. SYR took a bunch as well.
The opinions I post are of mine and mine alone, not of the airline I work for.

Seems like a scheduled swap lasting into the first couple days of August. Not sure the reasons.
