Iím glad im flying home now and donít have to fly again until Monday night. Iím surprised for the cancellations with such a small forecast of snow. (Though this is ATL after all)

Good ol Atlanta. Ever since we looked like the Walking Dead in 2013, we shut down with the threat of a single flurry.

That explains why I couldn't log in a little while ago. Thought it might be slow Internet. Thankfully I'm flying nonstop overhead of ATL tomorrow, but my plane is currently scheduled to come from ATL in the morning, so I might not be immune.

Dozens of flights for tomorrow morning are cancelled already. Looks like a mass cancellation of the first inbounds to ATL. Going to be a mess. Hopefully not a meltdown, but it's worrisome that they're having problems already.

Did you mean January 2014?

And I always make a screen shot of my boarding pass when I check -in online.

Looks bad after bragging about no mainline cancellations in Nov!

Delta is having an identity crisis. They think they're Southwest.

pluckily my 77L to LAX is already in ATL. However really a panic to be canceling so early. 35 air temp and not crazy winds won't be sticking to roads. Seems like panic for no reason. After last weather bungle I guess over cautious.

Just got back in myself. Seemed the system was able to keep track of how many times I attempted to log in while it was down and had to reset my password. I keep checking to see when the AMEX MQM boost will kick in and get me across the DM threshold for the first time. I have 740 miles to go and will cross that on the jaunt to BUF this weekend.
