84 degrees and clear 🙂
Leftovers from the northeast snow storm were slowing operations down a bit in Florida – LaGuardia in an air traffic control hold until 1pm, for instance – but Spirit handled us fine.
I gotta tell you, the operating people on Spirit – attendants, ticket agents, baggage handlers, pilots – were fine. They were victims, too, of the screwy events of Saturday.
But … the plane coming down from DC was an MD80-series aircraft. The same as we had Saturday, the equipment that the co-captain said wasn’t suitable for us.
Was there more baggage on board Saturday? Did the slight mist from the incoming storm change the flight rules for balancing of the airplane or runway requirements?
I don’t know. One day the MD80’s no good, two days later, it’s OK. Any pilots out there?
