Flight delays at Newark, LaGuardia

By Michael D. Bolden

[The delays in this post refer to delays of flights and not security or ticketing lines]

7:50 p.m. Update: The delays continue at Newark and LaGuardia. Chicago's O'Hare Airport is also experiencing arrival delays of more than an hour.

3:50 p.m. Update: The FAA is not reporting any flight delays at National. However, the airports in the New York area continue to experience delays associated with wind.

2:30 p.m. Update: Delays at National are increasing, currently running 31 to 45 minutes. Wind delays are affecting several airports in the Northeast, including Newark, Teterboro and LaGuardia.

1: 30 p.m. Update: Economy parking at National is full.

Flight traffic across the country appears to be operating smoothly, with few exceptions. However, passengers headed for Newark were facing arrival delays of 36 minutes, which may also affect departing flights. National Airport was experiencing departure delays of 16 to 31 minutes.

If you're flying today, the FAA and the airports advise that you check with your airline for how your flight might be affected.

Locally, you can also check the airport parking at Reagan National here. Currently there are spaces in all of the lots, but the economy lot is down to 129 spaces being available (out of 2,442). Dulles reports that all parking areas are open. A Twitter report from BWI earlier this morning also reported that all parking options are available there.

You have to be kidding me. I'm sitting at National right now and I see unusually short lines (nobody asked for a patdown search, fyi, and the TSA guys running the line said requests were only slightly more than usual) and I see very few delays on the board except those going to stormy airports.

I assume "National" refers to Reagan Airport. :-)

Just to post a comment, I felt like I just went through TSA cavity search - I will always refer to Washington National Airport as Washington National Airport - adding Reagan in the name only cheapens it.

You can see I am a grump!

I do not understand the logic of the Post's using incorrect terminology for our airports. When the Airports were created, one was called National Airport, the other was called International Airport. Later the International Airport was renamed Dulles International Airport. More recently, National Airport (which is no longer correct, as international flights leave from there)was renamed Reagan. If you want to call one airport Dulles, the other Airport shound be Reagan. Otherwise go back to calling Dulles, International. Shame on Dr Gridlock

It's not "shame on Dr. Gridlock." For one thing, he didn't write the post. More importantly, though, it's the fault of the Washington Post's stylebook, which calls for the name "National" when using a short name for that airport. Technically "National" was never the airport's name: It was "Washington Airport" and the word "National" distinguished it from an international airport--it was not, and still is not, an international airport because it cannot receive international commercial flights due to the lack of a customs and immigration facility. (The flights that presently operate to that airport from Canadian cities and from Bermuda and the Bahamas are legally treated as domestic flights because passengers pre-clear US Customs and Immigration in the departure city. Departing international flights do not count for "international airport" status because the USA does not stamp your passport when you depart the county--compare that to Russia, which stamps on both entry and exit and will not allow you to leave the country if your visa expires.) A lot of people called it "National," of course, but it was never the airport's name.
