My sister and brother-in-law are in Vegas. They arrived as we were leaving. Now they’re leaving, but late.
Are you having weather issues? Our flight to Milwaukee which starts in Orange County is delayed 2 hrs.
That was from my sister. Clear blue here. I went to work.
Everything is available nowadays–more than most people think. All flight data files with the FAA are online in real time.
I worked backwards. What plane heading to Vegas would be her chariot out?
She was wrong about the Orange County (SNA) flight. That flight is crazily late, around two hours, but it will go on to PHX and PIT, not MKE.
I checked her gate, C7. Working backwards, the last plane in that spot is headed to Las Vegas from Milwaukee. And that flight, Southwest 3012, is also behind schedule.
WN 3012 (I don’t know why Southwest’s official abbreviation is WN, but it is) started this morning in Oklahoma City, nine minutes late. It was 23 behind getting into Houston’s Hobby Airport.
The flight left Houston around a half hour late, but cut that in half arriving in Ft. Lauderdale.
The weather across Florida sucked today. Instead of their normally cellular thunderstorms, Floridians on-the-ground and jet pilots in-the-air are dealing with solid lines of thunderstorms slicing the peninsula.
Wheels up from FLL was an hour fifty eight minutes late! It had to be the weather. Alas, that’s too much to make up.
So, my sister and brother-in-law will have a few extra hours in Vegas. Good luck.
