AAL49 Paris To Dallas - Emergency At LHR

Tue Aug 23, 2011 10:46 am

HI,
AAL49 has just landed at LHR after squawking 7700 over the English Channel. Does anyone know the nature of the emergency and why it didnt return back to Paris?

Thanks

Whatever the emergency is, it's smart thinking to drop into LHR if the chance arises.

AA has numerous flights daily out of there of course, which makes it easier to get PAX on their way assuming it's a tech problem.

Flight spent a short amount of time in London, due to a mechanical, took off at 14:15 local and arrived at DFW at 17:51 local.
