SA203/9203 Today JNB-PHL-JFK? Why?

Sun Aug 14, 2011 10:04 pm

Just listening to atc and springbok 9203 has just landed at JFK.

Checking saa.com..... It shows last nights JNB departure arrived this morning at PHL.
Ot ground stopped for almost 11hours before continuing to JFK???
Was this a diversion and a crew timing out issue?

Wonder if pax got bussed or re-routed to NYC area and who handled the A340 and pax at PHL.

Any info fellow a netters ?

Could've been a temporary diversion until the weather in JFK passed.
From the airport with love
