Watching the chaos that is JFK airport on Snapchat and @flightradar24. Cannot believe it’s allowed to operate like this and hasn’t been shut down with all inbounds diverted.
The most insane part of the JFK madness right now is that it has been going on for DAYS. Seeing some jokes about airlines turning round over the Atlantic, but no joke, that’s a better option right now.
Meanwhile, there are two Aeroflot flights with the same flight number on the ground at JFK. I can’t even.

What caused @JFKairport's ongoing meltdown?

1) Snow, obviously. Some gates were closed as snow was removed
2) Slowed ops. Everything moves slower in this bitter cold
3) Diversion recovery. Many of aircraft flew back to JFK on top of a normal schedule. Can't handle that volume

4) General incompetence. Terminals at @JFKairport are independent fiefdoms. A T1 airline can't use any other terminal. They must wait for T1.
5) @JFKairport doesn't care. "It's not my problem" is a main theme there. This is an airline/terminal issue, not airport issue.
Also, #DisbandThePortAuthority. Any airport agency wouldn't have let passengers sit for 7 hours after a 13 hour flight, chalking it up to terminal issues. @PAPD911 should have assisted these passengers in some way.
