Flightaware says "Hartsfield-Jackson Intl (KATL) is currently experiencing all inbound flights being held at their origin until Friday at 05:15PM EDT due to security."

Is it a coincidence that there is also a groundstop until 5:15 PM at CLT due to "security"?

Pilot just announced that this is due to security threat directed at air traffic control center. Not the airport itself. Waiting to here when ground stop will be lifted.

Oh boy this is bringing back memories to July when I got stuck in DCA due to toxic fumes coming into ZDC (Washington Center) which was evacuated for three hours. Hopefully this won’t last as long as that did.

The update... arrivals are starting to be permitted at 4:10 CEntral time

The good news... PPDBs (post-predeparture beverages) are being served. ��

----------------

And, PDSB.... pre-departure snack basket.

Really good service. ��

Ah okay, makes sense. I must have misinterpreted the FAA Ground Stop Scope.

Wheels up.time...

But still going to make the connection difficult if not impossible. Perverse to say but I hope that one was delayed, too!
