AA 54 - Interesting Diversion

Sat Jan 11, 2014 3:07 am

ORD to MAN diverted to Boston. Spent the last hour in flight at 11,000 ft.

Would this be intentional to burn off fuel to get down to MLW?

Quoting aerodog (Thread starter):

First guess would be a cracked windscreen with no other details.

They had a potable water problem. A/C took off again just before 23:00 local. Perhaps they were attempting to thaw the system if they thought it was frozen by flying at a lower altitude. Still, it's not likely to be above freezing at 11,000 feet in that area this time of year. So who knows.
