UAL 931 B772 LHR-GEG

Mon Aug 06, 2012 1:27 am

This afternoon a UAL B772, FLT 931, operated a scheduled flight from LHR-GEG-SFO-LAX. I searched both Flight Aware and the UAL site and did not see anything indicating a diversion. I can't imagine that it was Olympics related. Spokane had a couple of competitors in air rifle shooting, but I can't imagine that would warrant United stopping here for that. Flight Aware had the flight delayed here at GEG, but I'm guessing that was due to traffic flow at SFO. Anyone know what was up with this flight?

Both sites show it as a diversion. Since it was only in GEG about 90 minutes it may have been a medical emergency.

It was a medical diversion. Passenger suffering from kidney stones. Thankfully nothing life threatening, but I still hope they make speedy recovery, nothing fun about those.
