I've been upgraded into F on a scheduled UA AUS-IAH flight and the FA's never even got out of their seats.

Hi,

A reddit poster requested that anyone with shots of QF7 visiting Austin share pictures with y'all of both QF7, so here they are along with some of LH440, the Lufthansa B748 that diverted from IAH yesterday. Unfortunately, I can't post the images directly or link to the imgur albums because I am a new poster, but you can copy/paste these to view via imgur:

LH440: /a/6jkR1XV
QF7: /a/B3de2W2

Well, that is a creative way of allowing us to see the photos. Thanks for taking the time.

I'm a little late to the party, but there was a power outage at AUS this morning that pretty much shut down everything. Power is restored, but sounds like it is still a mess:
https://www.kxan.com/news/local/aust...port-terminal/

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Power was restored to Barbara Jordan Terminal at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport just before 8 a.m. Wednesday after travelers were left in the dark for two to three hours that morning.

The airport posted on social media just before 5 a.m. confirming a power outage in the terminal. It said, “airport teams have been dispatched to investigate the cause of the outage.” An AUS spokesperson told KXAN just before 6:30 a.m. backup generators did kick in then.

AUS said flights were previously halted, but as of 9:48 a.m. the ground stop was lifted. KXAN crews inside the terminal said security lines began screening passengers at 7:40 a.m., and AUS officials confirmed this.
I'm flying out later today on the BA flight, so hoping everything is better (I'm sure not best) by then. The aircraft left LHR on-time and is scheduled to arrive at AUS on-time.

Oh if you have time to kill, check this thread on Reddit:
https://www.reddit.com/r/Austin/comm...ort_just_lose/

There are stories of people walking from the TX-71 interchange to the terminal (I'm guessing 1/2 mile), with roller bags, etc. Also people joking about campfires at some gates...and a UA agent manually wrote out boarding passes to get a flight out.
