AA 114 scheduled LAX-EWR diverted to TUL and has been on the ground since 2PM, flightaware shows the flight scheduled to depart TUL at 6:43. Aircraft shows as a 752. Any idea what happened? Obviously tech but any more info?

TUL is the main maintenance base for AA's 752's so it's certainly the place to go for a tech diversion if possible. Nothing available in the local media that I can find, usually they pick up diversions especially on a slow news day.

Right Air Recirculating fan "burned out" causing smell/odor throughout the cabin. TUL is not a good divert station for maintenance as the Maintenance Base is a long way from the terminal and one must always think about how to handle the passengers. TUL does not have very many direct flights to other than AA hubs. OTOH, with the smoke/smell issue, the pilots would want to get on the ground pretty quickly so if TUL was the closest "suitable" airport.....

Plane departed TUL at 6:37pm arriving EWR at 10:31pm.
