Last Wednesday (3-02) flight QF17 made a stop in Santiago de Chile on its way from Sydney to Buenos Aires. Does anyone know why? technical stop perhaps, medical?

Don't think it would have run out of fuel, it may have run "low" but not out.

It's perhaps lost in translation, but It had insufficient fuel to make SYD without stopping, so therefore it 'ran out' of the fuel that was calculated to fly from EZE-SYD direct + reserves.....
