I'm onboard DL55 to ATL and we just diverted to DKR due to a woman who was 26 weeks pregnant going into labor and delivering the baby in flight. The flight attendants did a marvelous job helping her deliver, and kept their heads about them. The front end crew made a quick decisions to divert. Wonderful CRM all around on DL's part. Just waiting to get a new flight plan and some fuel before continuing on to ATL.
Nice Trip Report!!! Great Pics, thanks for posting!!!! B747Forever
Hopefully you aren't stuck there for too long. UA diverted 143 LOS-IAH to DKR not too long ago due a dead passenger, and it was a helluva time trying to get a fueler, a way to get paperwork to the crew, and authorization to leave. Diversions are rough enough to a flight, it's even worse when you have to divert to a country you don't normally have authorization to fly to.
