CO 28 Diversion

Wed Aug 04, 2004 2:13 pm

Hey all,

Looking at flight tracker here at work and see that CO 28, a 777 from EWR-LGW, is being diverted to Gander. Looks like it was about 200nm off the coast of Newfoundland when it turned around. Anyone have any info?

CO 28 spent about 2:30 on the ground in Gander. It left at 0741Z bound for Gatwick. New ETA is 1200Z.

I guarantee you, someone off that plane will throw a fit that they missed their flight because someone needed medical attention. There's always a few onboard, even if someone is dying, who don't see that as an excuse to make them miss their flight.  Smile

Alpha1, that's crap and you are being called on it.

Medical emergencies do occur without prior warning and I hope to god it never happens to you and some half wit writes what you wrote.

Nice signature by the way!!

Not to get in the middle here, but I think Alpha1 was basically saying the same thing as you Delboy, not justifying it. But hey, maybe I am wrong.

It definitely happens. I saw complaints over medical diversions. There are more and more morons that need to send a complain regardless what was the reason for a delay.

Not sure if it is the same in CO parlance, but at my carrier CRC is Central Reservations Control. They are the folks who oversee the content of our CRS (computer reservations system). In SABRE, every flifo entry is entered with reference to a city (or pseudo-city) code and notification code. It's interesting to see how CO's system works with D and P lines, stringing arrival and departure info together on the same line, using different lines for out/off times, etc.

Does L01.37 mean 1 hour 37 minutes late?

What does that last line of flifo mean?


The ")" after out/off?

Thanks for sharing,

The fltfo shown is definitely different then how it would be displayed in Sonic. L01.37 does mean late 1 hour 37 min
DVRT is Divert
) .. no idea on this one.

Interesting that the flight departed EWR a hour late to begin with, then the diverting only adds a delay of 30 min. Must have some good tailwinds eastbound.

Alpha1 hit the nail on the head. You can with certainty, expect there will be be someone to blame the airline and seek compensation because of a medical situation. It's just sad to see the general airline clientele deteriorate exponentially like it is.

Heres a little insight on the flifo:
(this is typical flifo that shows up for us in CO's sonic/shares)

the L1.37 means its Late 1 hour 37 minutes
correct me if Im wrong, but I believe the ")" means that ACARS updated flifo, as opposed to dispatch or operations, which would result in a * after the time.
and the last line is the page that CARS makes in the DRS for reaccommodation for any passengers that need protection. From what Ive noticed, usually the page is totally randomly named, which is why it has CNL in there (for cancelled) Hopes this helps!


ps- CARS = Continental automated reaccommodation System

well if i haven't gotten anything else out of this thread, i've gotten a new phrase to use...i never really thought about how a person could be called on such crap, but now i guess its possible since Alpha1 was just called on it!

"that's crap and you're being called on it!" will be my new phrase of choice....

thanks Delboy  Smile
