Why did LH 446 divert into SLC? It was amazing to see an A340 in SLC I think it's the first this airport has seen...... It just left for DEN now circling around somewhere in Colorado... (burning fuel?) Wonder what's going on.

Has to be due to the thunderstorms in the Denver area. SLC is a long way to divert, and there are closer airports that could take an A346, but without immigration facilities. As with these weather diversions, crews often time out and there is a high probability of cancellation, they'll try to go to an international airport if at all possible.

Looks like theyre having similar problems getting in now, so hopefully it clears up soon.

D-AIHY diverted to SLC due to wx

another A340-600, D-AIHD, doing flight LH492 from FRA to YVR diverted yesterday to KEF due to an emergency onboard.

and last but not least LH499 from MEX to FRA didn't operate as the B747-400 (D-ABVY) went tech.

WEIRD! I flew LH 760 to DEL at FRA the same day and 492 to YVR had been boarding at the gate right next to ours!

Lots of diversions at DEN yesterday. I flew out of there and we waited almost 2 hrs for clearance to depart. This was after 3 re-routes before we even left the ground. was very nasty weather from about 430pm on till after we left, which was 8pm

I landed at COS last night and the storms coming in looked nasty. It was a bumpy ride coming down.

I wonder why? It's a beautiful day here in Denver with hardly a cloud in the sky.

Earlier today that seemed to be the case, but now it looks as if both LH 747s are going to take off within an hour of each-other at 20:55 and 22:00 LT. (With the same Flt Number, maybe ATC callsign will be different?)

Not good for T/O pictures, but maybe a night-shot?
It´s sad not to see 2 scheduled LH 747s at MEX any longer...

Probably one will be LH499A and the other one just LH499?

According to FlightAware, the "extra" flight is listed as "LH 4T3" Wonder whether they will use that as the callsign as well?

Just saw on the local news here in Winnipeg that a woman on board delivered a baby in one of the galleys. There were 3 doctors and nurse on board who assisted in the delivery. Baby was 7 weeks premature but is doing well in a Winnipeg hospital..
