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?

CX828/829 is going thru ANC again effective Dec 2004.

This could be the answer . . . maybe not a diversion at all . . .

ANC is right. CX operates is HKG-YYZ flight via ANC. I imagine that is the flight you saw. A343, correct?

But if its just a transit flight how come there were groups of passengers arriving on charter buses? And airline staff were escorting them through security?

I think that one CX828 - HKG-ANC (tech stop)-YYZ went tech while on the ground in ANC.

So it wasn't so much a diversion, as a longer-than-expected stop.  Big grin

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?

Visit ANC live cam http://209.193.48.89/

Cathay Pacific CX829 arrived from Toronto YYZ, A343. You can see her right wing next to Asiana B744.

China Airlines CI 7 arrived from LAX, B744.

Asiana Airlines OZ221 arrival from New York JFK, B744.

Later China Airlines CI 11 will come from New York JFK, A343.

These are all passenger flights in ANC.

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.

CX828/05Dec went technical while on the ground in Anchorage.

The people the OP saw being bussed were probably the pax being ferried back from their hotels for resumption of the ANC-YYZ leg of the delayed journey.
