Or maybe even the terminal evacuation because of too much snow on the roof!

Guess I was lucky... flew in on time UA942 on Wednesday and had an on time departure to WAW Saturday on LO... maybe because it was the only LO scheduled flight... normally 3 a day... but as on the 25th last year, only one CDG-WAW this xmas day... we'll see when i fly back to CDG on Wednesday

Iad-dme, ua/964, 12/25

Looks like IAD-DME diverted to SVO (power outage at DME).

DME-IAD showing 2pm, but that doesn't seem realistic.

Tough time to be in UA ops!

A little extra background on the situation at Moscow Domodedovo (DME). The airport closed on Sunday morning due to a power outage (English article here). On Saturday, the Moscow region received a freezing rain storm, which of course turned into ice when the temperature dropped. Icing at a power substation and downed wires led to the outage at DME.

As of last (Sunday) night, partial power was restored, and domestic flights resumed flying. DME's website (www.domodedovo.ru) is bad and slow at the best of times, and is particularly unreliable at this time.

The Sunday service of UA 965 DME-IAD shows cancelled on UA.com. SVO's web site (www.svo.aero) does not show the ferry flight from SVO to DME, though other ferry filghts show up. Does anyone have more information on this flight, and whether a special flight will be operated to take these pax to IAD?

EDIT: UA flight status now shows yesterday's DME-IAD flight going out today at 1630, arriving IAD at 1945 as UA 9810. Russian news media are reporting that DME is now 80 percent operational.

EDIT 2: Mayhem rules at both DME and SVO, as flights continue to be delayed. UA 9810 is now set to depart at 1930, but we should perhaps believe it when the wheels are up.

UA 903 MUC-IAD delayed now going on 3h due to minor' mx issues. Very nice service from GS ground staff (on top of F op up from W+SWU and from XC for Mrs CTW and little miss CTW). Hopefully just paperwork left now...

12/28 HKG-SGN
12/29 SGN-HKG

Not sure why the flight is cancelled as both the 744's are enroute to HKG from SFO/ORD.

ualcargo is just saying operations.
