If there were an issue, MIA has better protection for the passenger and possibly a swap of aircraft (if available). The Dispatcher and MX Control would talk about the issue, and confer on where the best suitable place to land would be.
Landing at an International destination would be a big hassle not only for the passegers, but also the airline.

Not completely sure what the maintenance issue was, but it wasn't that terribly long to resolve, although certainly not a great experience for the passengers. Anyway, after he came back he was boarded up and ready to depart an hour and a half later; same aircraft. Then there was some kind of pushback issue, ground equipment or something. He got into CCS at 2320 local.

Well as it was Miami apparently AA didn't managed so well. They took everybody out of the plane with no food vouchers or at least some compensation or anything. They didn't even apologized. I think AA needs to improve their customer service on emergencies like this one. On a side note the call center was not so helpful with me when I asked them what was going on.
