A United A320 just passed over my house going into ABE. This is definately not a scheduled flight since UA only operates RJS and Saab 340's out of Allentown. Anyone have any idea how to find why she is here.

Looks like a diversion for some reason, The flight was scheduled DEN-LGA.

edit: UA website says "schedule change due to weather" and has a scheduled departure time of 3:00, just speculation but it looks like a fuel stop.

Looks like it was UAL310 DEN-LGA. Must have stopped in for some fuel. LGA is experiencing delays for weather.

How often does this happen?? I mean stopping for fuel due to weather? and is this the first thing airlines do before having the a/c go to their alternate airport?

It happens more often than people think espically here in Chicago where in the spring we get bad thunder storms and in the winter snow. The problem is that you cant always predict how long a plane may have to hold for a landing slot. If you check other airports in the area im sure there will be a handfull more that are accepting diversions. I'm not entirely familiar with the protocol in the NYC area but here you will see flights going to MKE IND PIA RFD among others, in this case ABE was the alternate.

KLGA is reporting a scattered at 6000 and overcast at 7000ft with light rain. Maybe a medical diversion since the weather doesnt seem to be to bad there?
