UA Express 5703 Tonight ORD-CAE, Weird Route

Mon Sep 12, 2011 2:40 am

anyone know why UA Express 5703 ORD-CAE took 4 hrs and 15 minutes and circle around ORD before finally heading to Columbia? Thats a loooong time to be on a CRJ!

These were two different flights (click on track log and graph for details).
The first was an air return to ORD that took off at 1702 and landed at 1754. They tried again at 19:41 and successfully landed in CAE an hour and a half later.
