DFW - Windy: Use of 31L/R Today

Thu Oct 28, 2021 6:19 pm

Very windy day here in the Metroplex. Both Takeoffs and Landings are happening on both 31L & 31R.

I'm not saying it never happens, but from recollection, when in this configuration, DFW typically uses 31L for Takeoffs and 31R for Landings.

I was a bit surprised to see planes taking off from 31R, as well as landing on 31L.

Fun day here, I suppose.

Looks like the planes will be getting the "deluxe tour" of mighty DFW as they go on long taxis to/from the terminals to 31L/31R. I imagine having departures from 31L and arrivals on 31R would mitigate the extended taxi times just a bit?

Saw a cross-field approach to 31L around noon today. Later, I saw a 18R departure where they made a 90 degree turn to the West shortly after getting airborne. Wow.

Looks like there was a brief ground stop as well.

I'd be curious how many delays / cancellations AA had today at DFW .

MY work was a zoo all day. we had several drivers delayed & diverted today on their way into DFW.
