QF 11 LAX-JFK has been holding for almost 2 hours.. that is amazing to me.

Finally heading to DTW, just south of London (Ontario, Canada). That's going to have a domino effect on all the flights for Qantas back to Australia. I would not be surprised if passengers on this flight from JFK are kept on to BNE and then handled there to their final destinations, while potential overbookings on LAX-BNE are routed onto A380s to MEL and SYD.

Wow, Qantas at DTW. I wonder if that was a first.

Nope, a couple of years back the same flight diverted to DTW, but then it was a B747-400. The flight then went back to LAX a couple of hours after that

PVD took in AA 1489 CLT-EWR.

Again, surprised at how few we got so far today.

That effects from the ocean to the South and Narragansett Bay often steer the worst cells away from PVD should be no secret.
