    Wasn't it a week or so ago they sent out an HI6 they were going to tell everyone this was going to happen? An Eagle self-generated ground stop? ORD flying is always fun if there's a snowflake in the air, heaven help you if there was a frost and you're the first flight in. Hope you already got your coffee and bagel, 'cause you're gonna be running late for the rest of the day.

    Not sure if that was a typo or not.

    DFW is getting as bad as ORD. Lots of waits for gates. Once the gate is open, it's wait for rampers while burning 400 pounds per hour (a gallon a minute) at about $4/minute.

    Multiply 1700 flights per day X 1 minute wait for rampers X $4 X 365 days = $2,482,000

    If Envoy wants to save some money, I know where they can start. Since the rampers are already on the clock, it's pure savings at no extra cost.
