Есть такой замечательный сайт Advanced Travel Partner, на котором, среди прочего, есть подписка на уведомления о проблемах в аэропортах мира.

Например, застрял ты в Цюрихе и читаешь:

Winter Weather Transport Delays Dec. 17 — Europe

Severity: Warning Alert

Environment: Winter weather disrupting transportation across Europe Dec. 17/18. Expect flight, road, and rail disruptions. The locations affected by this alert are:

• Austria
• Bulgaria
• Croatia
• France
• Germany
• Hungary
• Italy
• Netherlands
• Poland
• Switzerland

Harsh winter weather is complicating transportation across much of western and central Europe. Most major airports are open Dec. 17, but are operating with severe delays and sporadic cancellations; heavy snow in Germany prompted officials to ground at least 450 flights. Other countries where flight operations are severely affected include Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, Hungary, Croatia, Bulgaria, and Poland.

Про взрыв в Домодедове сообщили практически так же быстро, как об этом стали писать в твиттерах, но подробнее и хорошим слогом.

A powerful explosion at Domodedovo Airport (DME) in southeast Moscow Jan. 24, killed at least 10 people and injured a number of others at the O2 restaurant. Authorities believe it might have been a suicide bomber, but initial reports are still inconclusive. Operations at the facility have been halted as of 1720. It is unclear how long it will take authorities to reopen the airport. Disruptions are likely even after DME reopens as the backlog in flights is cleared.

Security inspections may also prompt flight disruptions at Vnukovo (VKO) and Sheremetyevo (SVO) airports, especially as some inbound flights at Domodedovo will probably be diverted to those facilities.

Confirm all flights. Avoid nonessential ground travel in Moscow until weather conditions improve. Expect checkpoints around the airport and in southern Moscow. Do not check out of your hotel before confirming onward transportation.
