What a day yesterday! We started in ATL, pushed back and a cover promptly fell off a slide pack. Back to the gate for us. Now we were behind. We flew to CHS and back and were late departing and arriving in both places. Next we headed for DEN.
We got to overhead PUB and were put into holding due to a huge thunderstorm overhead DEN. (As a side note we also had the strangest holding pattern ever, holding on the 180 degree radial of the PUB 080/20 nm fix.). We talked to dispatch as fuel was running low and they tried to get us to hold longer for DEN. We didn’t take the bait since there was serious weather between COS and DEN and COS was our alternate. We diverted to COS. We finally reached DEN after 2 hours on the ground in COS. So far this trip we have had one divert and one near divert…in 2 days!?!
