AA 674, DFW to TPA diverted to MSY last night, Dec 12.

http://flightaware.com/live/flight/A...4/history/20081213/0255Z/KDFW/KTPA

This morning's 6:20am to DFW (flt 805) was 1 hr 40 min late, related? Plane swap?

Anybody know what happened?

Thanks.

Probably a scheduled delay because of crew rest requirements. This happened to me once about a year ago, going from PHL to ORD on UA, and the flight showed up as delayed (thankfully, only by about 20 minutes) starting the night before.

Looks like a medical emergency. Medical kit, AED & O2 were open/used. Plane has a history of right start valve issues and it did that again when trying to depart MSY-TPA so AA674 was given a new plane.

This was the plane from AA674 the previous night. MSY maint. thought they fixed the start valve issue, but it reappeared again this morning. Eventually got it fixed --enough to get it to DFW where it went to the hanger for the rest of the day... for maintenance?
