UA 777 At STL Today

Sat Jul 10, 2004 10:38 am

Was it a diversion? It looked like the weather near ORD was less than stellar this afternoon. It came in around 1400, left around 1600. Just wondering why it was here, any help appreciated.

May be another military R&R charter to STL. Not sure if STL was the other airport other than ATL and DFW taking them in.
That's why we're here.

It was A/C 2371 diverted due to weather in ORD. (Now there something new weather delays in ORD)

Weather was terrible this afternoon here, only black and it looked like we were underwater city...

Guess that is the deal with the flight. Makes me happy, as exactly 24hrs before, I was on a UA777 to ORD... we landed ahead of schedule due to nice tailwind, with no holding and very quick clearance for 22... CH9 rules...  Smile

Does anyone have the flight path of this flight? I was in my pool this afternoon and saw an unusually large jet fly over with a somewhat dark underbody. It looked larger than most traffic that flies over the house, although it was too high for my unexperienced eye to tell what it was.

If the weather up there is anything like it is in STL right now, it's your typical summer thunderstorm stuff. I'm honestly surprised that we didn't get more aircraft in here, but it probably wasn't a huge storm.

Since we're talking about St. Louis and Chicago, this must be said: Go Cardinals!!  Big thumbs up
