What Happened To UA919 (IAD-SAN)?

Sun Dec 09, 2007 6:06 am

Does anyone know what's going on with UA 919? Flightaware.com shows UA 919 making a diversion into ABQ and then taking-off again, but United.com says the flight diverted to PHX. What really happened, and what caused it to divert?

I noticed that too, and the UA web site shows UA919 going IAD-PHX, but cxld. As for it stoping at ABQ, I know the jetstream was coming across from southern Arizona right through NM and up over the plain states. And running well over 100kts, so its possible that the flight had to stop for fuel. If it was a reposition flight I would have guess it would use a different flight number, as opposed to UA919, so im not sure about that.

It looks like he flew IAD-ABQ-SAN, according to flightaware. No idea why United.bomb shows it stopping at Phoenix. He spent 01:02 at ABQ.
