US Airways 1933 Diverts Back To PHL?

Wed Jan 08, 2014 3:11 am

Does anyone know why US Airways flight 1933 to Saint Lucia (TLPL) diverted back to PHL about fifteen minutes after departing?
The flight circled for a good hour before finally landing:

Once the plane landed the ATC asked what the "breaking action" was like and the pilot responded "fair", then he was told to continue to gate A11.

Also, this doesn't appear to be a regularly scheduled flight...
