AA1700/08SEP SJO-MIA Diverted To LIR

Fri Sep 09, 2005 4:02 am

Flight AA 1700, an A300 from SJO to MIA was diverted to LIR due to smoke in the cabin. Flt arrived at 1400UTC in LIR and checks are being made still. Everyone OK. A ferry B757 is being sent from MIA to LIR to carry the pax in case of a cancellation (flt. was carrying about 235 pax) and maybe taking some Mntnc guys on board.

How is a B757 going to cover this?

Trinidad and Tobago's National soccer team is on board. I guess the smoke came from them being pissed about the loss against the ticos last night.

They will use the B738 that flies from LIR to MIA (AA2130) to send some passengers and the rest on the B757.

So far the A300 is estimated to depart at 2030UTC from LIR.

 rotfl  Good one!
Don't expect to see me around that much (if at all) -- the contact link should still work, though.
