- Total Time
I was there about 1 pm today, there was a thick fog, down to minimums rvr on 17L, it was pretty interesting..anyone there?
Actually, I was there, but as a passenger. I was airlining back from FLL to LAS on a free SWA Rapid Rewards ticket after a week on the beach with a connection in AUS. The connecting flight on 12/17 was cancelled because LAS was closed due to snow. I got stuck in a hotel in AUS for the night and rebooked on the 9:35am flight to LAS on 12/18.
When I got to the airport the morning of 12/18, ADDS was reporting 1/8 sm vis and 001VV. DFW, DAL, SAT, IAH, HOU, and MFE were all reporting about the same.
I didn't think our airplane would make it in, but sure enough, about 10 minutes before departure time, the B737 came taxiing up to the gate. We departed only 30 minutes late. Way to go SWA.
