Looks like it diverted last night @ 11pm due to a medical emergency....then something else occured (mechanical?) delaying the flight until 2pm today.

Apparently, there was a big mx issue and they flight is now "scheduled" to depart for GLA at 1400 YHZ time. Seems they had to overnight the customers and crew.

It'll suck for the for all, including those waiting for flight 17 GLA-EWR.

Yikes!

A tad.

CO 16 shows off YHZ at 1405 and arrival at GLA at 2314.

Flight 17 is now 'scheduled' to leave 0014. 15:14 hours late.

Things like this will happen from time to time.....trust that CO will do its best to make the passengers comfortable and get them to their final destinations.

Mechanical delays such as this affect every airline and all types of equipment occassionally......it reminds us that an airplane is a very complicated machine that can break down. Events like this are rare - proof that the men and women who take care of the airliners do a very good job.

The flight was originally a medical diversion but due to an overweight landing some issues(no idea what they were) were found with the landing gear and they had to be addressed before the flight could be continued.

The crew got a layover in YHZ out of it and and VERY short layover in GLA. Tough pairing for the cew.

The fact they didn't dump must have been a factor in the plane having issues.

Hope the passenger fared well.

Did they have to bring in a new crew, or did they have to have crew be off duty for some minimum hours so wouldn't be over time limits?

According to their pairing, they had a layover in YHZ, flew on to GLA and had a minimum layover (around 9:30 hours) there before continuing on back to EWR as scheduled.

No new crew.

The B757 can not dump fuel.

There was an issue with the nose strut after landing and had to wait for parts to be flown in causing the crew to go illegal. This was not a result of an overweight landing even though it could look like it.

In a case like this, is the airline responsible for putting the pax up for the night?

Who foots the bill in such a case? The airline or the traveller who took ills travel insurance company (assuming they had insurance) ?

The airline picks up the costs.....by providing hotel accommodation, meal vouchers, telephone costs, transport to/from the airport, etc. The airline also will assist in re-booking passengers with onward flights (ie, missed connections) and notifying hotels/tour operators of the late arrival. Passengers who have travel insurance may claim extraordinary expenses, such as spending money while stuck in transit, extra costs incurred due to the delayed arrival and the like (sometimes these claims are quite creative.....we got stuck in Halifax and I just had to purchase a new wardrobe).

There is a lot of bitching and moaning about airline service (or lack thereof), but it has been my experience that in situations such as these, airlines in general (especially the larger carriers) do everything and anything they can to keep pax comfortable and to mininize inconvenience.

As I said above, airplanes are machines that will break down from time to time, nothing can be done to prevent it. Its amazing that incidents such as this are so very rare.
