And that seems to be the case today, with a commanded delay program for flights arriving at ORD and a separate one for flights crossing through parts of Michigan and Ohio. BTW, the ORD program has an average delay (before cancellations) of 233 minutes, with a maximum of 734 (!!). IMPACTING CONDITION: WEATHER / THUNDERSTORMS; COMMENTS: ARR 4R/9R/10 DEP 32L/4L 9R
