UA 2010 on Tuesday, Aug 7

Thu Aug 09, 2018 2:07 pm

Hi there, quick question. I was at ORD on Tuesday (8/7) and incoming aircraft for my flight was UA 2010. It was coming from LGA. About 150 miles from ORD, it was diverted back to LGA. How do I find out why? Unfortunately, I don't have any more identifying information. Any one know why or how I can find out?

The flight never got airborne - it gate returned and cancelled due to weather. Extended taxi times due to weather/no routes available.

The weather in and around ORD mid-day on Tuesday was terrible. A storm cell parked just west of the field for almost 2 hours. No aircraft arrived for about an hour and there were numerous diversions, then the UA flight from HKG successfully landed but must have reported very bad windshear and it was another 45 minutes before another aircraft arrived. So the field was closed to arrivals for nearly 2 hours. Airfield operations recovered by late afternoon/early evening (my wife was on the DY flight and it arrived without holding or any delay), but UA operations were a mess, largely because the impact of the storm was much greater and the airfield closure was much longer than anticipated.
