Welcome to the "high tech" world; no one is responsible.

Yeah, I find it weird when people hide behind technology. No, the algorithm didn't just act up. Someone created the algorithm, and someone chose to employ that algorithm. There is a human in the loop somewhere.

I totally understand system issues and planes at gates preventing offloading through the jetway.

But I don't understand the planes (as many as twenty according to one tweet) just sitting, waiting for a gate in the 100° plus heat.

Get a stair truck out there with a bus, and let the people off the aircraft.

Can't do that. Once the plane pushes its technically "en route". Only certain events, as described in the carriers operations specifications allow returns to the gate. All decisions are made on the team level and the pilots / crew are just one part. Ops makes those decisions based on the big picture.

Just love all the armchairs fliers on FA.

Haha, what?! I scoured our ops specs and FOM and couldn't find any list of acceptable reasons to return to a/the gate. The only requirement is to record the OUT and IN times for DOT and flight time tracking purposes. It's true that the decision to gate return is made in coordination with dispatch, station ops, etc. But never in my time at the airline have I heard that once a flight is "en route" it can only return to the gate for certain events. I'd really love to see a reference for that statement.

uhm, they have this thing called airconditioning on planes. IT even works at the gate. Maybe the last 50 years or so ????
falcon771
Yes, and we all know how well A/C works when only powered by the APU. Not to mention older packs on many of the aircraft. Even when connected to PCA, the amount of cool air being circulated is hardly enough to keep things cool in an aircraft sitting on the tarmac.

drive yourself then. Don't hop on a plane and expect it to run according to your whim. If you're the type that must be in control, buy your own plane

Been fine whenever I flew out of Phoenix with many days of 100+ (like half the year).

It is DEN

The correct IATA location code should be used

Locally it is referred to as DIA, not by the IATA code.

Kansas City is the same way. Locals call it KCI--when it is really MCI. Drives me batty.
