Topic: RJ At DTW - Weirdness In Schedule And Extra Flight

A friend and I were talking and he said he heard RJ on the radio today (Friday) at DTW....

Now, RJ operates DTW-YUL-AMM on Tuesdays and Thursdays...

But that wasn't the extent of the weirdness! Yes, in fact there was a DTW-AMM (direct) flight today, but yesterday, they operated 2 flights here, does anyone know whats up???? Is there some Islamic holiday going on that I don't know about?

Just to add to the oddness they flopped the schedule too, they are now back to direct DTW-AMM (they took away the stopover at YUL) and moved the times around from a night time arrival to a morning arrival and departure......

So after about an hour of searching, I am more confused than when I began!!! Can anyone help me?

EDIT: I think I solved part of the mystery.

Thursdays they apparently were operating 2 daily (RJ267/268 and RJ269/270) but are moving that to 1 daily starting next Thursday. One flight operated with a stop in YUL and one without that stop (according to RJ). The new flights will be all non-stop (again according to RJ) without the stop in YUL...

But that still doesn't explain why RJ269/270 was at DTW today!

Apparently the flight out of AMM yesterday had some sort of failure and had to return to AMM shortly after takeoff. They did not have another a/c available, so they had to wait till the next day. This is what i understood from a friend who was supposed to be on that flight. Ill try to get more details.
