CX A340-600 Diversion To YYZ On Nov. 28?

Tue Nov 30, 2004 6:39 am

I just heard that there was a CX A340-600 diverted to YYZ enroute to New York on Nov. 28 at approx. 1330 EST. Does anyone know what caused the diversion?

There seems to be a more than usual number of CX diversions/emergency landings in North America recently: emergency landing at LAX early Nov., diversion to YYZ in Oct., etc. CX has a remarkable safety record and is a very technically strong airline. Is there something going on with their technical operations recently or is it just pure coincident?

How about bad weather delays in the NYC area? And since the JFK bound -600 flys directly over YYZ and the fact that YZ is a online station makes it a pretty good alternate! BTW in case anyone is interested, the aircraft in question was "QC"

I can vouch for MadViking as well-- I did see the CX 346 land at YYZ.

Diverted due to bad weather & very long ATC delays in NYC area. Better to stop in YYZ, refuel, and leave later, rather than get to NYC with low tanks, and have ATC tell you to hold two hours...

Here she is at HKG back on Sunday (11/28), starting her take-off roll as flight CX830 to JFK, only to end up at YYZ.
