I know that WN has dramatically cut ISP over the years (PVD, BNA, LAS, MDW, JAX, Florida frequencies, etc) but it shocks me that they cut MDW when there’s clearly a demand for that flight + endless connecting opportunities.

EI DUB-MCO diverted to FLL

Any clue why it diverted to FLL? They had originally filed to divert to PBI but ended up in FLL. They’ve been on the ground for a while. It looks like they were taxiing to finally depart but they ended up coming back to the holding area.
