The press has been exceedingly clear that this is all a PSA problem, but if issues have been going on for the whole weekend it would seem that itís got to effect some mainline commuters or at least ramp up the premium time for the AA guys.
Have a flt connecting there on Wed evening and just curious if all is back to normal yet ?

Define "normal". I don't think CLT has EVER been considered "normal".

If you mean excessive gridlock on the ramp and in the terminal, then yes, it would seem so.

My first thoughts exactly.

Yup,

3 ridiculous safety hazard frequency changes within 200 yards, ramp controllers who can't count ("follow the second 737/Airbus" when it's actually 3 with 2 RJ ducklings nosed up the APU tailpipes), don't know the difference between a 737 and the Airbus and when they do, they surely don't know the difference between a A320 and a A319, and when it gets congested, lets plug up every entrance/exit point while aircraft behind can't get to an open accessible gate.

They make MIA look like the USMC Silent Drill Platoon in comparison.:D

You gotta forgive those ramp tower guys. The last time they saw one of "dem sebben thurdy sebbens" it had those long cigar-looking engines and was headed to Lynchburg by way of Greensboro.
