This is an odd sighting. I arrived at PHX at 4:20 PM from Dallas and noticed a large tail protruding from Terminal 3 as we taxied to it. I knew there weren't any scheduled 75's and the tail seemd rather large for any AA bird at PHX. As we neared it, I saw it was not only an AA 767, but a 762, something that wouldn't even be subed onto a flight to PHX. As there was a fire truck with lights on next to it, I figured it had to be a medical diversion. I don't know if it's still there now at 5:31, but it was at gate 6 when I left the airport.
