The majors clearly have extensive scenarios for snow.

Even account for the fact those plans might not plan for a
Blizzard of '96 size event, they DID have many hours notice the
excretment was going to enter the HVAC....

So WHY did they abandon such large portions of the fleet in the
Ground Zero airports? Why not ferry them anywhere of the area ahead
of time? Then they'd at least be available for use -- as it was, they
cancelled 33% of all domestic flights; I'd guess at least a third
were due to equipment shortfalls.

Or they could pull maintenance cycles on 'em -- unless the maint.
base was covered.

Not to mention the possibility of damage from plows & thrown snow
with (oops) other stuff in it, or such.
