i blame Canada. if they had the decency to build some mountains east of their Rockies then we wouldn't have these Arctic blasts in mid-March.

I'm re booked on a flight that so far hasn't been canceled. I'll be getting in an hour later and that's if this isn't canceled or delayed.

Going to sleep in a bit - have to be early to leave for the airport.

Safe travels, I'll see you all soon!

It's called "pulling down the flights."

Two factors: The NY/NJ Port Authority absolutely FAILED the airlines this whole season with an inability to clear taxi and runways quick enough to get flights in and out quickly (the Port Authority run all three NYC area airports). So, the airlines, knowing the PANY/NJ will not be able to handle it, have reduced the number of "operations" (flights) in and out of NY tomorrow. I had a hour long call where we discussed early reductions.

Secondly, as I mentioned before, it does not take much for the New York Air Traffic Control System to need "slow downs." They try to cut down on the number of airplanes in the area (instead of a plane landing every minute at LaGuadia, they will thin it out to one every two minutes). Air Traffic Control will ask airlines to cancel flights. Each airline will be required to cancel "X" number of flights. They will look at the loads on the flights and condense passengers.

This is ALMOST a daily occurence in the NY area. Add a prediciton of 5-10 inches of snow AND/OR ice pellets, and things get UGLY.

We are booked on a 6pm flight out for arrival at 8:30ish Friday evening. I will be looking for alternatives when I get to work tomorrow!

IF you think you may need help, feel free to call me on my cell phone (see April's list)...but do so before 9:30am EST - I will be stuck in interview sessions from 9:30 until noon.
