Just deleted the text. DENpilot was onboard and clearly upset with the decision making upfront. Must have been a wild ride.

Curious... if he was on the plane which was below 10,000 feet, how did he get that screen shot? Interwebz are inhibited on GoGo below 10.

That's around the time the tornado sirens were going off in Kansas City.

You can go to flight aware.com on the ground and just type in the flight number and the flight path including the wx at the time will be there.

Aren't we expanding GoGo to allow gate to gate usage? Or has that not started yesterday?

If only we had the situational awareness in the cockpit that people on a laptop at Starbucks have.

Forget Starbucks, what about the passengers behind us?

Barring a FlightAware glitch, they most likely are trying to climb out and head to the alternate, at least that's how I read the situation. At the risk of Monday morning QBing, sure looks like those guys let themselves get backed into a corner.
