UA 129 is diverting to DEN right now. It's scheduled from ORD to LAX. The ATC is asking for fuel on board and other questions.

Any idea what's happening or why the diversion?

Thanks.

On your deathbed you'll receive total consiousness- so I've got that going for me.

If ATC is asking for FOB and other info, that would tend to rule out a medical diversion, and suggest something mechanically-related...to me anyways...

BTW, how did you find out about this? were you tuned on Denver Center?

Nah, I was tuned into Anet...  Wink

UA129 DEN-LAX was in the air a little over an hour after landing at DEN, so they could have used another 757 that had already terminated at DEN, leaving the presumably busted one there for overnight repair. All assuming it was a mechanical issue...

Definately sounds like a mechanical of some sort. If the spare is there, might as well use it.

Hi was mechanical

AC landed 2148 and took off again DEN 2248

Aircraft landed LAX 2357-so the delay was not too bad at the end of the day!

Cheers!

I guess that would have been the ETA
Main thing the ac is on the ground in LAX and was at the gate at midnight

Cheers!
