Hello,

I was just having a look at the BHX to EWR (my local connection to the USA you see) flight and I noticed it diverted to Maine today.

Can somebody give me any more info as to why please?

Check FlightAware.com for KBGR. CO 111 and 77 also went there. Might be waiting out the wx at EWR.

I was the ISM on CO flight 123 from CPH-EWR. We had a tech stop in YYR (Goose Bay) along with our flights 75 (HAM), 97 (TXL) and 69 (ARN).

Looooong ass day, but flight went well and smooth. The weather in EWR was crappy and precipitated the planned fuel stop in YYR. GREAT GREAT GREAT ground staff (both aviation services and Border Protection agents) in YYR. Hats off to ALL of them.

Cheers,

Bill

There were also quite high headwinds on the North Atlantic routes being planned last night. Couple that with the winds, weather at EWR and these things happen.

One of those days......its usually a combination of factors that result in unplanned fuel stops. Today it was (1) high winds, (2) good loads, and (3) poor weather in EWR that, when taken together, resulted in the tech stops. Many Europe-US Esat Coast flights has an extra 45 to 60 minutes of flying time due to the headwinds.
