Due to the cyber attack of the colonial pipeline over this weekend shutting it down, which delivers half of the East Coast’s fuel supply, airlines are preparing for a possible fuel shortage. According to airliners.net, American Airlines has already planned some flights out of Charlotte to make fuel stops, with likely more to come. AA730 performing CLT-LHR tomorrow will be routed CLT-BOS-LHR, and a flight CLT-HNL will also have to make a fuel stop in Dallas. Charlotte is not the only airport serviced by this pipeline, Atlanta, Nashville, Baltimore, Washington/Dulles and smaller airports like BHM and GSP are as well. Stay tuned to this thread for updates.
This seams interesting. I hadn’t heard of the issue. Seems pretty bad. Hope they can get it going again soon.😉
