    I was actually supposed to fly thru DFW today but my plans changed (lucky for me). I feel bad for those who are stuck but I'm glad I missed out on the fun.

    My friend ended up diverted to Wichita on the way to DFW, which was a stop on the way home to BWI. It was quite the mess both in the air and on the ground.

    Dallas+Summer have yielded this result for many years.

    Everyone makes it home or to their destination in the end, no? ;)

    It was a mess. My flight got diverted to Tulsa. Of course we were on a 767 and they didn't have a Jetway big enough to get us off the plane, so we sat on the tarmac for a couple hours until there was an opening in the Dallas weather. (They did bring us water and granola bars). Then once we landed in Dallas they had a ground stop because of lighting and we waited another couple hours before finally getting to deplane. My flight to Houston had already been canceled (the plane never left Vegas) so i just ended up renting a car and driving home to IAH.

    But, on a positive note, the pilots kept us up to date with Info. And the FA's were fantastic. They were smiling and laughing with the passengers and doing their best in difficult circumstances. Even most of the passengers kept a good attitude.
