Looks like some are headed to FWA.

Got a couple going to DSM; one to Peoria. Looks like a real mess today.

ORD was accepting CAT II and CAT III approaches. I imagine AI had either the CAT II or III capability on MEL or the crew wasn't qualified.

For awhile this morning ORD had RVRs of 500 or less, no one was landing at that time.

AI reportedly taxiing out now. Other diversion of interest was an AS 739. Everyone else was AA/UA domestic mainline or regional. About 20 diversions in all.
Boiler up!

Geez, IND was CRJ/ERJ heaven for a time this morning.

Looks like MDW was not affected by the low visibility, just ORD?

Departing out of ORD for PHL this morning at 0720 on AA, I was able to watch the conditions worsen firsthand and at least two cancelled approaches (one YX 175 and a Spirit). Certainly interesting to watch no one arriving at ORD on a Monday Morning.. however the fog was pretty impressive over the east end of the airport.

IND is a big, new airport with lots of gate space. It's ideal for diversions from ORD.

IIRC, most diversions to IND don't get anywhere near the new terminal. They use the ramp over at the old terminal unless they absolutely need to go to a gate.

I would have love to seen some crazy diversions to FWA. Never have I seen much more than a Regional Jet and Allegiant.
Currently at PIE, requesting FWA >> >>

There's certainly no shortage of parking space around that airport. Especially during the middle of the day.
Now you're flying smart
