Original routing of both flights were JFK-MEX (DL279; B757) and LAX-MEX (DL396; B757).

DL396 (LAX-MEX)
Arrival at SAT: 9/11/02 12:20 AM
Departed at SAT: 9/11/02 01:05 AM

DL279 (JFK-MEX)
Arrival at SAT: 9/11/02 12:39 AM
Departed at SAT: 9/11/02 01:28 AM

Anyone know why? Is it just a coincidence that both flights were destined for MEX?

The airport (MMMX) was suddenly closed for some reason that night, presumably while flights both were enroute. Guess they sat it out in SAT and departed once MMMX was reopened...

As delta_fan said, MEX was closed down until 00.45 hours of this Wednesday. According to reforma web site more than 200 flights were affected. Among others, KLM diverted to GDL and Lufthansa to ACA, some united flights to ACA, PVER, Veracruz, etc.
