EWR/BON and BON/EWR cancelled?? last night and this morning??
I watched the IAH departure going over the house albeit late but no EWR.
Flamingo tower says delayed.
UA says cancelled.

There was a security breach at EWR, an infant was not screened so they went into lockdown. I believe it shut the terminals down for about an hour but everything is back up and running now, perhaps this is why.

Flamingo tower says it is 15 hours late.
UA says it was cancelled.
Take your choice.
They have a runway closing at EWR..... no mention of the loose infant or shutdown.
Delta departed on time..... went over the house.

Almost 14 hours late.......... anyone know the reason???? .... and it was not the pins in the baby's diaper at EWR.

The reason, Hank, is that our wonderful Transportation Security Administration is run by a bunch of paranoid bean-counters who like to make a major scene about things once in a while to let the world know who's really in charge of things...
