DL 777 Diversion To DFW Today.

Tue Oct 09, 2012 10:46 pm

I saw what I thought looked like a DL 777 on approach into DFW this morning at a distance, and sure enough it was the ATL-LAX flight (DL1455):

Does anyone know why this plane diverted to DFW this morning and if it has already left?

I've flown on 9V-SPK.

The way things are going with some folks, we may have more than just that big single beautiful hangar.

I was guessing that he was referring to how things were going at AA, no?
