Delta website is showing today's (8-12) flight 166 from ATL to JFK was diverted to IAD. With Washington and NYC so close together does anyone know the cause?

Please note, I don't have access to company internal info, but just curious. Also, this is my first (virgin) post.

Welcome to the forum!

DAL166 was diverted after flying in the hold for a while near IAD. Flight refueled and changed to DAL166A and is at JFK now. Hope this helps!

166 continues from JFK to Accra. Most pax on the second portion originate in New York, but I wonder how many people missed that connection.

(BTW, Accra changes back from the 764 to the 763 next month, meaning some of us again get to operate one of the DL system's most interesting trips!)
