Lots of heavy weather events in the United States
« on: April 29, 2016, 02:33:44 AM »
Seems the United States has been getting a lot of heavy weather random events lately. In the past year, it's happened on:

05-Aug-1975
01-Jan-1976
11-Apr-1976

And in that span it has not happened in any other country.

Is the heavy weather event weighted more heavily on the United States than on other countries? Or weighted to occur more frequently because there are more players based there?

Doesn't seem like this should be happening so frequently and exclusively if the events are to occur randomly.

Everything is bigger in the U.S, even the problems with the weather.

But wasn´t there a railroad strike too before,for a few weeks,which led to fuller a/c?

So some how it will be balanced out eventually.

No railroad strikes in the US that I can see within the last 17 months (which is as far back as the world event log currently goes).

Mainly, I'm wondering what the mechanics of the 'random' event are since occurrences seem heavily concentrated within one country. Is it because of the size of the market (effectively hard-wired)? Or variable due to the number of players?

Not so much concerned with the 'balance' of positive/negative events per se. Though I don't see a railroad strike as necessarily equaling things. The weather event causes a CI drop that can persist for several months after the event.

But the Canadian winter is an annual event, not a random event!  ;D

Then again, the US heavy weather "random" event is looking more like an annual event. Occurred again 25-May-1978.

Yes it is demotivating if delay factor weather or atc kicks in,while you are doing your best in other ways to keep your planes on time.
Well just 6% on time is really harsh though.

Heavy weather slows down air traffic in United States:

01-Jan-1987
07-Apr-1987
04-Jul-1987
04-Oct-1987
20-Jan-1988

This is literally happening on a quarterly basis now!!!

Again, can the mechanics of this "random" event either be detailed or fixed? Why does it seem to be so heavily weighted to affected the United States vs. other countries?
