A guess, but looking at the profile it's fuel (my guess). With holidays loads very high and some very strong headwinds between BOS and Indiana they may just not have the fuel to safely make it.

Sounds like a passenger issue

Yikes, taking a look at the winds at FL360, that's pretty nasty all the way from BOS to the mighty Mississippi...I would also think this is a standard winter tech/fuel stop.

Guess one of the pax decided not to make the connection in LAX for the short hop to Vegas and preferred a nonstop to LAS.

This flight didn't hit FL 360 till around the midwest it flew mostly at FL 320.

Check out my link. Winds down to 30K are still very nasty. Typical winter!
