Perhaps a glitch of some sort...AA flifo doesn't seem to show any diversion.

One of three things....,

.....one would be a maintenance issue. They would divert into BGR as it has a big American Eagle Maintenance base.

.....or weather in the New York area. When I was based at BGR often we would get weather diversions from the New York area.

.....or it could have just been a ground stop for traffic. They would go up to BGR (as it is a MX base) to wait out the delay.

Update-

Another flight tracker is showing it under a different number and running non stop to BGR. My guess, EWR was an alternate and the information was entered into the computer wrong. This could also just be a MX ferry.....

AA flifo never shows air interruptions, they only keep that internal.

Then I would lean toward a maintenance issue...... Now we just wait and see if it's big enough to make the news, or just one of the dozens every week that we never hear about.

Apparently not, it landed at 10:30 at EWR. One of the oddest typos I've ever seen on behalf of AA operations I guess. Maybe the aircraft will be ferried up to BGR after EWR.

...and Flytecomm shows AE306 landing in at 1205p in BGR..

CHQ 5306 STL - EWR...dep 0724 - arr 1023
EGF 306 STL - BGR... dep 0823 - arr 1205

Two simular flight numbers from the same airport, two different destinations.

That's the same trip. Now I really don't get it. Can anyone from AA or Eagle fill us in here?

No, it's two completely different airlines and different aircraft. They just shared a simular flight number that day

Chautauqua......5306..EMB-145..STL-EWR..departed 0724
American Eagle...306..EMB-135...STL-BGR..departed 0823

..and being a weekend and there is an American Eagle MX base in BGR it was just a normal reposition for MX.

Why is there an American Eagle MX base in Bangor? Is it a 'cheap-labor' thing? No one would consider BGR to be 'centrally located' within any route structure, but maybe that's not really a consideration.

ChrisNH,

"Why is there an American Eagle MX base in Bangor? Is it a 'cheap-labor' thing? No one would consider BGR to be 'centrally located' within any route structure, but maybe that's not really a consideration."

I'm not completly sure I'm right on this, but my guess as to why there's an MX base for Eagle at BGR, goes back to The Business Express-BEX days. Before the were bought out by Eagle in either 1999 or 2000, BEX had long operated an MX base there for its fleet of SF-340's.

Yes, Business Express opened BGR as a MX base back in...I want to say fall of 1996. When Eagle took over BEX in 2001, it changed to an Eagle base. With the complete butchery of the old BEX route system that Eagle has done in the northeast, I'm not suer how long BGR will be around.
