That's quite funny, because in PHX Arizona it's sunny and low-80s right now    . I wonder how AA feels about that

Sounds like we should all be route planners for AA and UA

Probably very happy that they aren't connecting passengers from MSY to YYZ via PHX.

Depending on tonight's weather Flights are planning to resume around 1800 Herb with delays up to 120mins.
But BWI,PHL,DCA,IAD are all weather advised for tomorrow because of this storm.
Good luck.

I'm at work right now at the Willis and it's not looking too hot outside. The snow looks a lot more like freezing rain and looks a Lot like Ice and Slush at the street level. The visibility is about 1/4 mile but again I'm on the 27th Floor.
It's actually pretty slow at the moment, at least on my desk. As compared to other days. I'm usually "Hitting it pretty hard"..
Once the snow stops I'm sure the pace will pick up to the normal level.

Doesn't seem too bad to me up near Evanston. I've seen multiple snow plows go down my little residential side street today so they must be keeping up fine. Not windy at all here. Airports shouldn't be that bad...

LOL, so true, although all my other flights went fairly smooth. My first WN WX cancellation was the tuesday after "Nemo" hit. That monday night I was flying my airline JFK-IAD-JFK, my IAD-JFK flight got delayed because of fog. Apparently, the combo of fog and the ISP runway lighting system going out meant that the R.O.N. aircraft for ISP couldn't get in, so my morning flight on WN was cancelled. The BWI crew for my airline asked "wait, you weren't flying on our airline!?" My response was "I am NOT flying over my house FOUR TIMES in one day to work in BWI (since I would have to fly JFK-BOS-BWI-BOS-JFK)" LOL. Unfortunately due to my travel schedule the rest of that week and the next (I was working in MVY, SRQ, OAK, SMF, SJC and SFO) I couldn't re-schedule until this week.

Hahahaha...nah, if it gets cancelled, I'll re-schedule again ASAP. At least this time they have my cell number to call to let me know of the cancellation. I have a hotel ready to reserve if my return leg gets cancelled.

On a side note, how desperate (and retarded) does the Weather Channel look for constantly giving lame names to these winter storms?

Back to the topic...how have the UA/AA/WN ops been able to re-route connecting pax via other hubs?

Haaaaaaa Ok I'll give you that, but maybe they could've routed that through DFW or NYC or something

Ehhhhh I don't get it either. My buddy who used to work for them said this was in the making for years, because they weren't getting the numbers they wanted when it isn't hurricane season.

WN shouldn't be too bad with re-routing, but god help AA.....
