Any word on why the diversion? Medical? Being on the ground at PUQ for a little over 2 hours seems a little more than a spash and go.

Likely a medical or splash n go... Anything else probably would have just continued to EZE or would have taken longer than 2 hours

unless there was a major calculation error, surely they had enough fuel to make it traveling eastbound (polar), unless they had a bad routing.

Does anyone have any definitive answers as to why?

Could this have been related to the volcanic actvity in Chile? When I flew AKL-EZE a few years ago I remember flying past a number of volcanoes in the Andes.

Most likely not since it did not erupt until last Saturday. Chile has many volcanoes and earthquakes are quite frequent. Air traffic in Chile remains unaffected, however in Argentina, some airports have been affected by the ash cloud from the Puyehue volcano, which is located over 500 miles south of the Santiago Metropolitan Area.
