Looks Like An Awful Day On The East Coast

Fri Sep 11, 2015 12:16 am

Big delays owing to substantial line of storms running the length of the eastern seaboard. 2+ hour delays at JFK, PHL, EWR, and LGA. Hour delays at IAD and DCA. 1:10 delays at CLT.

Going to be some stranded passengers tonight. Well over 60 diversions on the east coast as well.

yes, thank goodness i'm not flying back from MCO to BOS until tomorrow. I know folks flying up today were not looking forward to the ride.

Email i saw from B6 earlier this afternoon put delays at JFK at 4+hours and EWR at 3+. but that was a while ago.
That feeling when you sit at the end of a runway, brakes are released and the raw power takes over. Now that is a thing of beauty and it never gets old.

ATL also appears to be getting hammered.

IAD and DCA have been generally rain-free all day.

I thought the same, but after a 30 minute delay due to change if equipment and late arrival of same, I flew AA104 DCA-JFK and arrived 4 minutes late. No turbulence and a quick in flight time too! 42 minutes I was actually stunned considering what the radar looked like and the FAA saying 273 minute delays on arrivals

No, an AWFUL day on the easy coast was this date, fourteen years ago.
Today, relatively speak, is a minor inconvenience.

Crazy how a statement like that really puts it all into perspective.

You got that right; I'll never forget that day, a horror show in real time.

RIP AA11, AA77, UA175, UA93.
..everything works out in the end.

Well, I didn't mean to be a doom-n-gloomer, but it's a swift reality check for us all.
We tend to allow our worlds to shrink down to the problem we have right this second. And then we blow it out of proportion, etc.
I rarely get bent out of shape when I fly anymore. Cancellation? Okay. Maintenance delay? I'll take it.
Involuntary bump? Now I'm irritated.... lol. But otherwise, life is easier if we just chillax a bit and go with the flow.
