Looks like maybe the feds have pulled the plug on several telephone ATIS in presumably another "cost saving" measure.
I've routinely used those numbers when controlling to sync my info with RW landing configs, mostly at KBOS. But BOS, ORD, IAD have all been disco'd. LAX, EWR, DTW, & MSP are still up.

Wow, that's an odd move. Denver is still up, too. I use it for the same thing   .

Just called ORD. It's very faithfully advertising triple West operations at the moment...

Its too bad that the D-ATIS feature isn't linked to a free national website to make that easy(at least I do not know of a easy way to get D-ATIS); I use it at work through subscription services which make it nice.

Boston's is back up.  Dulles' is back up too, but many sources don't have the phone number listed anymore (it's 571-323-6374).

IIRC, the numbers for the ATIS at various airports (I believe ASOS and AWOS are also there) show up in the d-AFD that is posted at Aeronav. So they should always be listed there, as I believe they also follow the 28-day AIRAC cycle.
