The SHOW: Airlines still a "good gig"??

Pretty sure the explanation is legit. The wind on Thursday was beyond ridiculous, most of the runways at DFW were unusable. Five N-S parallels and two secondary NW-SE diagonals, the crosswind on those parallels was out of limits for a lot of airplanes. That badly limits the throughput. (The wind in Houston was almost as bad, FWIW, and the airport layout is similar, but I think DFW has more takeoffs and landings.) That was the first domino to start knocking over the others.

Would HW have answered his own question if he had actually read the story he posted?

You can spin this multiple ways, but that is an awesome response from the "cat mom." And I say that as someone married to a crazy "dog mom."

"Yes, I get it, the dog is a crazy person, but that doesn't mean the airlines are going to accept that as a defense when he's in your lap and trying to show everyone how cute he is*."

*Disclaimer: he's totally cute.
