I was wondering why BE985 BHD-SOU was diverted to BHX today, the callsign sounded like "pan Jersey 985". Im not saying the word before was Pan but thats what it sounded like.

Does anybody know what it means?

Declaring a Pan is sort of a state of alert, but not quite an emergency worthy of a Mayday call, if that makes sense... If he said Pan, there's your answer... what the reason was, I can't tell you for sure, could be fuel, could be sick passenger, could be anything... If not a Pan, it could be that the weather in the south is crap at the minute although not bad enough to divert I wouldn't have thought. I'll give you an excerpt from Trevor Thom Book 7...

"The urgency or Pan-Pan message is made... when an emergency exists that does not require immediate assistance. Typical situations... include: Navigational difficulties, seriously ill passenger(s), technical problems, etc...."
