Kinda seems a bit out of the way for BWI-ORD. A news search turned up nothing, hence why I'm asking.

That is unusally a great distance unless it was weather, Some of the tops have been over 40k feet, AA had Lga to Dfw, divert to Tearkana texas, less than 100 miles away and diverted him again to Memphis due to the storms in Dallas the other night..Really odd ones here lately.
i can see for 80 miles
