Flight AA220 DFW-AMS Diversion

Tue Jul 03, 2018 12:27 am

Any ideas on the status of this flight? Noticed it circling over ACY from the beach. Dropped to FL250.

Looks like it is diverting to JFK per FlightRadar24. AA.COM shows arrival at 9:01 and departure of 10pm. Medical diversion?

Change of aircraft at JFK, though doesn't say why. That likely wouldn't be medical. And 772 upgauging to 77W, so that's probably going to affect some other scheduled flight from JFK.
Worked for WestAir, Apollo Airways, Desert Pacific, Western, AirCal and American Airlines (Retired). Flight Memory: 181 airports, 92 airlines, 78 a/c types, 403 routes, 58 countries (by air), 6 continents. 1,119,414 passenger miles.

Edit: 772 to 77W is per FlightRadar24.

Diverted due to a mechanical issue, hence the swap to a different aircraft.

American Airlines has a very unfortunate day for its USA-AMS operations today.

- AA220 DFW-AMS diverted to JFK for an aircraft replacement B772 - > B773, flight is now 4hrs late.

- Yesterday's AA204 PHL-AMS B763 diverted to BGR and passengers are only now flying on another B763 (24hrs delay) BGR-AMS, in parallel with the regular PHL-AMS of today.
