Delta Flight 215 Question?

Mon Apr 19, 2010 4:01 pm

I checked Delta Flight 215 from DKR-JFK because my friend is booked on the Flight. I read that it says DKR-SJU did they change the route because of the Volcano activity in iceland?

Hi Blueman!
Looks like a technical stop in SJU-is a 757 so probably had to stop for fuel due headwinds

Cheers!

That's a long diversion - over 1000 miles extra. would BDA not have been a better diversion point?
