I wonder if the Ed Stronski guy on the news is an A.Netter?
|Quoting N766UA (Reply 10):|
Fact is the airplane could have diverted to any alternate they wanted and they only declared an emergency to get the controllers to realize their fuel situation.
|Quoting Schipholjfk (Reply 12):|
How come the plane was not diverted to Buffalo (a bigger airport) or Rochester (ROC) which seems closer to Toronto (right across the Lake)? Was Buffalo experiencing similar weather condition at the time?

Yeah, KLM 691 was about to be rerouted and the exchange went something like this:
Pilot: KLM 691 is declaring a fuel emergency. Pan Pan Pan. We are low on fuel and request direct to Syracuse.
ATC: Copy, we can give you Hamilton if you'd like.
Pilot: KLM 691 that's negative, we have Syracuse as an alternate.
ATC: Acknowledged. Turn left heading XXX direct Syracuse.
