3 US Airways Diversions To ABQ Today

Thu Mar 22, 2007 1:57 pm

I was looking on Flightaware and noticed that a US Airways A321 flying LAX-PHL diverted to ABQ around 1:31PM. I then noticed that two 757s from LAS, one heading for PHL, and the other one to CLT, also made stops in ABQ. Does anyone know what's going on?

I'd say the other two planes stopped to pick up the extra passengers and help get them on their way.

Does US have a broken A321 in ABQ right now?

Looks like maybe the LAX-PHL diverted and the other 2 diverted to pick up the stranded passengers.

That seems plausible since the two 757's don't show "Diverted" under their flight history. They were scheduled today to be one-stops to their final destinations through ABQ.

The US Airways A321 finally departed ABQ for CLT after being here for several days. Does anyone know what was wrong with it?

That is a late flight to Charlotte. Is it re-positioning or delayed with pax?
