What's Up With UA 905?

Wed May 26, 2010 3:32 pm

Hello,

I am wondering what is up with United Flight 905 (FCO-ORD). United's web site says it arrive almost two hours late at 5:40 p.m. yesterday and today it shows that the flight stopped in LHR and will land at ORD around 5:45 p.m. (Two hours late).

Can anyone shed some light on this? I will be taking the flight back from Rome on June 5th ... so this makes me curious.

Thanks!

Maybe the weight is high and there are strong head winds ... is the FCO-ORD flight pushing the range of the 763?

Shouldn't be FCO-ORD is well inside of the 763ERs range...

my guess is they have to take a longer more southerly route due to ash?
