It looks like DL flight 170 from SLC to CDG diverted to Cinncinati.
Anyone know why?

Could be the hot and high conditions there - it was roughly 100 degrees today in Salt Lake. Might have taken a payload hit in order to get over to CDG, so it was decided a fuel stop would be in order rather than offloading a lot of passengers.

That's exactly what happened.

Since the routing will head almost immediately into Canada, wouldn't it be more effective to refuel on an airport in Canada that is about on the route to CDG? Since it's only a fuelstop you wouldn't need the use of an own station right? Any comments?

Even for a fuel stop most would like to land at a company station. Nothing worse than making a fuel stop and going tech. If you are at a company station you have agents to assist passengers and possibly mechanics.

Looks like today might do the same...Supposed to be 100 around 5pm today. And looks like they made it so they can't sell anymore seats on it. But there's still 17 in J and 11 in Y open seats.

Yesterdays went out with 6 open in J and 29 open in Y. And it was only 97-98 degrees when they left. Maybe they had a bunch of cargo yesterday. Who knows. But today might be even more weight restricted.

Sooo, if one wanted to, would they sell any remaining seats while they were in CVG iff someone wanted to pay, or since it is only a fuel stop, would they not let any pax on or off?

Well if they are planning a fuel stop anyway, might as well fill 'er up with pax in SLC if there are people who want to go.

No, they wouldn't add pax in CVG. Gas 'n go only.

If for some reason a tech issue popped up while in CVG and it took a while to fix, the crew might time out. CVG, being an ER base, could replace the crew if need be.

That is a GREAT question. Would this be legal? I think you make the right point in saying that it is a logistical improbability (impossibility even), but it is an interesting thought, especially for a very high-level agent who might have been dealing with potential oversales on a scheduled CVG-CDG flight.

Interesting thought.

I don't think they would add anyone on and it shows the same amount of pax from SLC all the way threw to CDG. Only way way that would happen if there is a MTC problem and it flew in for that reason to protect the pax that had a MTC problem in CVG, since this is just a fuel stop no one on or off.

Or even MSP. MSP is actually very close to the flight path that this flight took on 21 July, and it is now a DL hub.
