  • One thing I learned working at the airline: one of the dispatchers once explained how weather in a seemingly-unrelated city affects your flight. One of the parts of a flight plan is the "where are we gonna land if something goes wrong" plan.

    It's been too many years (ten in a few weeks) but I think there is a limit on the number of planes that can list a given airport as an alternate, so if Chicago wx is bad flights that would otherwise pick it bump to, say, MCI, and then flights that get crowded out pick DF

  • Wow! I knew you had a hard time with the airline, but I didn't know you were sleeping on the floor. That made my six hour delay look like luxury!

    I'm still looking forward to getting home; I'm in LAX right now, although it looks like my flight will be leaving very soon.

    A pleasure meeting you at OSCON 2008, and I look forward to seeing you again at OSCON 2009 (or sooner).
