Last night, I was at the airport and saw 2 Delta 757s at DAB. It looks like flights 893 and 1597 were diverted to DAB, why?
DL 893 was SJU-MCO which diverted to DAB
DL 1597 was LGA-MCO which also diverted to DAB
From the looks of Flightaware.com, it looks like 1597 held south of MCO for a while and then diverted. They should have hed enough fuel . . . it doesn't look like they were holding for that long. Also, flight 893 didn't even hold. As 893 came down the coast, it just qrapped around and shot the 25R Back-Course approach over the water.
It was pretty cool seeing the DL 757s . . . I kinda got excited that they may be starting 757 service here - no chance though.
