CO To LAX Yesterday

Fri Jul 29, 2005 2:54 am

Was there a 767 operated on the EWR-LAX route yesterday? I was leaving the terminal and there seemed to be a 762 at the gate around 5:30. It also seems that 1602 did not operate yesterday. There were a lot of cancellations, was this a switch?

1602 did operate yesterday, it arrived at 1:05 AM, late by 5:05. I don't see any 762's that operated that route.

IADLHR,
I don't know exactly what code red is but I can tell you the scene at EWR.
"Attention Ladies and Gentleman scheduled for flight ### to XXX, CO regrets to inform you that you flight has been cancelled. Please proceed to the nearest Customer Service desk for re-accomodiations."
The Departure screens were filled with red "CANCELLED" signs flashing all over. The CS lines were unbelievably long. The front was causing a lot of problems as it swept across the area and the east in general.
CO announcements blamed the cancellations on the weather and ATC.

Code Red is when a superior orders his subordinates to "discipline" a wayward comrade. It may take the form of a blanket party or other such "punishment", meted out on the offending party to get them back in line.

Who orders the Code Red is a good question and is shrouded in the layers of the chain of command. But we need to get Tom Cruise to ask the airline CEO the tough questions.

CEO: You want answers?

Tom: I think I'm entitled to it.

CEO: You want answers?

Tom: I want the truth.

CEO: You can't handle the truth! Son, we live in a world that has weather, and when that weather turns bad, who's going to fly through it? You? Or the most professional men and women in this business? I don't have to explain myself to a man who jumps up and down on Oprah's couch like a raving lunatic. Either you strap into a cockpit seat or you take the delay.

Tom: Did you order the Code Red?

CEO: You're goddamn right I did!!!

Tom: If it please the court, I move that we compensate all delayed passengers $300 vouchers good for a future flight and that meal vouchers be given as well. The witness has rights.

CEO: I'm being charged... (Larry rushes for Tom) I'm going to rip your eyes out and piss in your dead skull. You f***ed with the wrong airline!!!!!

Tom: Don't call me son. I'm a lawyer and a passenger with the highest frequent flyer status on your airline, and you're under arrest you son of a b**ch.

As much as I like replies 4 and 5, Code Red means you have planes unable to takeoff or land because you have nasty WX overhead. If it hangs around long enough, you start having aircraft divert to other airports and planes sitting out on taxiways for an hour or more. Flights not yet airborne from upline cities are told to stay put until ATC says otherwise.... In other words .. A fun time to be had by all..... NOT..  biting   crazy

Quoting 10MID (Reply 5):
Tom: If it please the court, I move that we compensate all delayed passengers $300 vouchers good for a future flight and that meal vouchers be given as well. The witness has rights.

And during a weather related delay, cancelation, those rights do not include any compensation whatsover.

The rights consist of the right to hang around, the right to try to rebook at no cost, the right to go home, and the right to a refund (not sure about that last one).

As for the 762, there's been a 762 subbing out on the IAH route occasionally. I saw it there in the morning a couple weeks ago at 8am.

Well, since CO operates quite a few 762s between EWR and IAH on the 6th, and EWR had many delays and cancelations, CO may have had to sub the 762 to LAX instead, as they were sitting idle in IAH and other eqiupment intended for the route (738s) may have been unavailable, delayed, etc.

Flight 795 arrived late at about 5:25pm. Might it have been a 762 today? Was it at gate 62?
