A guess, but looking at the profile it's fuel (my guess). With holidays loads very high and some very strong headwinds between BOS and Indiana they may just not have the fuel to safely make it.

Yikes, taking a look at the winds at FL360, that's pretty nasty all the way from BOS to the mighty Mississippi...I would also think this is a standard winter tech/fuel stop.

Guess one of the pax decided not to make the connection in LAX for the short hop to Vegas and preferred a nonstop to LAS.
