Hi everyone... I was wondering if anyone knows what happened to CO's flight 654 from UIO-IAH last Wednesday (Dec 20). The plane left the gate at 7:22 but at 7:50 (I'm not sure if it took off) returned to the gate, then left UIO at 11:27 but not to IAH, instead to MCO, which arrived at 15:45, and the flight continued (not sure if on another aircraft) at 17:30 pm to IAH.

Could anyone care to explain what happened to the aircraft? What was the issues and why diverted to MCO? Was it because the plane needed to be fixed? (I know CO has MCO as one of its mx shops, but why fly it there with pax if it was to be fixed?)

Please let me know what happened.

BTW, I'm having an awesome time in Ecuador, I'll be doing some spotting at UIO, which is great!

While the WX in IAH was  raincloud  yesterday, the delay out of UIO was due to MX. Fltfo history for the flight doesn't explain just why, but the stop in MCO was not WX related... The passengers did clear customs there and then arrived IAH as a domestic flight. Odd....  scratchchin 



Working very hard to Fly Right....

Thanks for clearing some of what happened, and as you said, the divertion to MCO is really odd... if weather was the problem at IAH, I would think there could be other airports closer to IAH... anyways, thanks for the information... still wonder what happened to the aircraft...
