Anyone know why this flight (May 26 departure) was diverted? YYZ is definitely 180 degrees out of the way for this routing, so it seems pretty weird.

Reason for asking.... my wife was on this flight and will be highly unamused so I'd like to be armed with some sort of coherent explaination before I talk to her  Smile

Aside... any insight into the upcoming load factors for YOW - FRA this summer and beyond? It's relatively new and seems to be doing ok... but I'd like it to stick around for a while.

Quoting AuroraLives (Thread starter):
my wife was on this flight

You wife was driving everyone crazy, so they diverted to let her off.  

Actually, it was a landing gear problem. It could have gone to YOW/YUL/YYZ, but Toronto probably offered better recovery options. They ended up havng to switch aircraft.
