Flightaware is showing AA61 from DFW to NRT diverted into SEA on 12.12. Is this a medical issue, aircraft? Perhaps a fuel stop (strong upper-level winds?) I'm sure this kind of stuff happens all the time, just curious. Thanks.

Looking at the map, it would appear that this was an unscheduled stop due to a medical, mechanical or other unexpected issue.. See http://flightaware.com/live/flight/A...1/history/20071211/1844Z/KDFW/KSEA -- the aircraft was already well past SEA when it turned around and went back. If it were a planned tech stop, it would have taken a direct route.

Flight reported a pressure leak on a passenger door. Diverted to SEA. Airplane was taken out of service. Another 777 was ferried to SEA to complete the trip.

The flight ran out of coffee and grunge music.

Ah my namesake here on Airliners... It would have to be Medical, I've never honestly heard DFW-NRT ever really stopping for fuel (not to say it has not happend before).
|Quoting BHMBAGLOCK (Reply 14):|
I saw the flight on the departures screen yesterday at SEA and definitely was wondering about it. It didn't seem quite right but now it makes more sense.
|Quoting LAXdude1023 (Reply 4):|
AA61 isnt scheduled to stop anywhere between DFW and NRT. Ive took this flight twice when I went to college in Fort Worth. When it makes a diversion it would have to be medical or mechanical.

On a side note, does anyone know when BR started sending 773ERs to SEA? I just noticed it the other day. If it is a permanent thing, I will miss seeing their 774Ms.
