Today, Lufthansa's Flight 418 Frankfurt-Washington/Dulles diverted to Amsterdam. D-ABTB was parked at gate E22 from 15.16 til 17.06. I saw some ambulance near that aircraft. Can anyone confirm that it was a medical diversion?

can confirm that it was a medical diversion/emergency. The emergency call was that a passenger had a cerebral (brain bleeding?). After investigation by the ambulance personal and police, it turned out that the passenger was only drunk??? So it LOOKED like if the pilot wanted to get rid of the passenger, before flying over the ocean. Flight arrived 15:16 and left 17:06.

what a waste of money and resources for a drunk guy....

The only time there is too much fuel onboard, is when you're on fire!

I am wondering if the passengers got something to eat on the AMS-IAD flight, it is not always the case when LH flights have to make an unscheduled stop, as this trip reports confirms.

Although that is kind of a smart and cool idea...like Pilotaydin said; they probobly spent alot of money to have that huge plane diverted. How retarted in my oppionion.

I am glad that this was nothing serious. I am sure the in flight crew made the flight pleasant as they would on any other flight.

Thanks for the info, fellow Dutchman! I'm just glad it wasn't something serious. They must have dumped a lot of fuel and I think the airlines should find a way to be able to prosecute drunk passengers. Can you imagine if the flight crew would exceed their maximum working hours and an airline is supposed to cancel the flight, put 200+ passengers in a hotel, rebook them etc.
