Aena, the airports authority, is currently in the process of replacing the ILS instrument landing system at Palma Son Sant Joan Airport. As a consequence of this, according to Aena terminology, the airport has been lowered from category three to category one. In practice, when there are adverse weather conditions, such as the dense fog on Wednesday, the result is that planes can't land, which is what happened on Wednesday morning.

Well said David, first thing he hasn't commented on for a lifetime. Probably to busy looking in the mirror and talking to himself. Anyway saves people having to read his self righteous drivel and downvote I suppose.
I am amazed that Captain 4 stripes Morgan has not come out from his totally mirrored life expanse to comment about the ILS system at PMI ? Both the glide slope and localiser failures ? Maybe coz the failure has disrupted the influx of American tourists with their thousands of euros contained within their wallets on United Airlines aircraft ? Maybe those aircraft have been diverted to Malaga where those Euros go further……..
