I was just at the Anchorage airport and noticed a CX airplane parked at the international terminal.And passengers were arriving by bus to check in for this flight.Does anyone know where the flight diverted from? What was the route? What was the reason?

They re-routed the HKG-YVR-YYZ flight to HKG-ANC-YYZ
That would seem odd though since ANC is US. They are going through an additional country to do the flight? Why not go through YVR since its Canada? But being bused is strange. I thought it was only for re-fueling so the pax stayed onboard?

CX aircraft in ANC are just a technical-stop, passenger changes is not allowed. What I think you saw the passengers travelling bus to/from terminal are just let the passengers took a rest in terminal rather in the aircraft. Usually the technical-stop takes an hour.
