So I was randomly checking flightaware.com as I usually do after work, and noticed a departure and arrival to IWA from Allegiant flight #122.

http://flightaware.com/live/flight/AAY122

As I was checking out the flight path, I noticed that it appears this flight diverted twice in the same day (7/8/2011) with attempting the same destination. Anyone have any information on this? Was it a maintenance repair check flight?

Thanks!

Ha, I was deadheading on a flight from IAH to EWR a few years ago and we diverted twice. Of course, it wasn't maintenance, it was summertime storms rolling across Pennsylvania and slamming Newark all afternoon and into the evening. I was counting my lucky stars that I got an exit row window and brought my own good supply of food and water for that one, because it wasn't pretty by the end! 8+ hours block time IAH-EWR.

Not sure what this Allegiant flight was about, but double diversions are rare.

It was maintenance related both times. Flight has been rescheduled for 09JUL.

A CX 77W en route from YVR to JFK diverted back to YVR twice last January due to a strange smell. After the 2nd diversion the flight was cancelled. If memory correct the aircraft was then ferried to JFK with a maintenance crew on board to see if they could identify the source of the smell.

I forget what the reason was for the first return to Mesa/Gateway Airport but once they arrived, the passengers and baggage were put on another MD-8x aircraft and the second attempt at Flt 122 departed. About 10 minutes out they received a high temperature alarm from the tail cone sensor and returned to Mesa/Gateway once again, this time being met by the emergency equipment.

The passengers were rescheduled for the next morning on another aircraft, though the report I saw on one of the local stations said that most of the passengers wanted their money back and were either not going to fly or were going to PHX to find a flight on another airline.

Media sensationalism at its finest. The next day's flight departed with 12 fewer customers (out of 124 originally booked)

I noticed this morning that one of these aircraft was parked on the ramp outside of the SIDA area/gates (just to the south) and was backed in, which I thought was strange because I drive past the ramp every day and have never seen that. I suppose this explains that.

Apparently on Saturday night when some monsoon storms were coming through, two arriving aircraft had to wait something like 2-3 hours before offloading passengers because of lightning. I'm guessing there were some pissed off people at IWA this weekend.

This happened to me last year on a TK flight from IST to JFK. The weather was terrible in NYC, with very high winds, and after circling for a while (at the end of a 10+ hour flight) we diverted to BOS to refuel. Then a couple of hours later we took off and tried to land at JFK. Two missed approaches later, we diverted again--this time to ORD, where everyone had to clear immigration and customs. Then we continued to JFK the following morning with a different crew, who fortunately happened to be available at ORD. Long trip.

I coincidentally watched the first of these attempts taking off from that shopping center at Power Rd and the 202. I saw several taking off while there and I think the flight in question wasn't painted in the regular livery and almost all white so I really noticed it.

the all white MD's are "Justice Air." I'm not exactally sure where they fly to, but they take illegal aliens back to mexico, or prison transfers to elsewhere in the US.

I did see a newish MD at IWA the other day that had a darker sun on the tail with some extra words painted on-top of the emergency exit areas on both sides. I believe its the same new paint scheme as the 757's they have.
