Re: DL drops Cape Town from JNB-ATL schedule

DL’s JNB-ATL is being diverted (hours ahead of time) to BOS. Any idea why? Gas, needs to top off. When this flight was a 77L and needed a tech stop, it would normally stop at SJU. I wonder why BOS was chosen instead. Crew availability. BOS is closer to DTW and ATL (A350 pilot based) than SJU is.
