Quoting RFields5421 (Thread starter): AP reporting the IND-DFW flight landed at LIT after reports of smoke in the cockpit or cabin.
Yep, that flight was supposed to arrive @ my gate to turn AA422 DFW-RDU. It went into LIT due to reported smoke in the cabin. Another MD80 was ferried TUL-LIT to continue the flight.
Once they got on their way, the groundstop & ensuing Charlie Foxtrot @ DFW caused the flight to divert to SHV. They finally continued on to DFW and last that I saw, the flight was ETA of 2212. Sked arrival is 1535, IIRC!
