UA Airbus At JFK Now

Wed May 16, 2012 8:28 pm

Anyone know what it is doing here parked at a hard stand near T7? They used to fly busses on sundays from SJU to JFK to ORD...but it has been a long while since those days!

Looks like one flight on Monday to ORD was an A320 as per FlightAware, but I couldn't see anything else listed:

UAL668 A320 Chicago O'Hare Intl (KORD) Mon 06:10AM CDT

That's adding a little variety to the 752's and CRJs though LOL!

Its a diversion...UA does not fly ORD-JFK.

UA 668 is ORD-LGA which on Monday diverted to JFK for some reason probably MX if its still there.
I know the voices in my head aren't real but sometimes their ideas are just awesome!!!

It was an MX diversion with brake problems...terminated at JFK until repairs were made...JFK often gets the LGA curfew diversions anyway as well...they had to get a tow bar from maintenance for the A 320...
