Hi, flight 96 was scheduled to go from LAX-PHL, but apperently made a emergency landing in PIT. I thought twice when I saw LAX - PIT, cause UAL dont fly that route. HOPE THIS HELPS!!!

that could have been a possiblity but according to united schedules they only have 2 flights from sfo to phl today, 90 and 92. i just happened to see this flt. 96 on flightarrivals.com not too long ago from pit-phl

I saw the flight tracker it was stop in PIT. It looks like PHL was snowing. It's possible too low fuel if the plane may holding pattern for a while by ATC request maybe pilot says no! We need more fuel that's possible to land PIT to get refuel. I don't know maybe I'm wrong or could be emergency landing for medical reasons or something.
