I was tracking flight 99 (to Hong Kong) as I booked that flight for a family member today. The CO website states it is diverted to Nagoya, Japan... anyone know the reasons for the diversion, and when this aircraft will make it to HKG?

A solar flare disrupted radio communications over the north pole. The flight is stopping in NGO to refuel b/c the longer route over Japan will require more fuel burn. It is due in about 6 hours late to HKG.

Just to add insult to injury, I understand the flight was delayed departing EWR by 2.5 hours due to either MX and/or Crew issues. .... Some days you just can't win....

Working very hard to Fly Right....
