Editing my original post as it looks like some flights nominated MEB but got in to MEL.
EK408 just went to AVV.
Gee we’ve had a lot of diversions on the Eastern Seaboard this past few days! Fun times!

When I posted last night I didn't have time to check things properly but reading the posts this morning (especially Michael's) I went back and checked the track logs and at no time did the three alleged aircraft at MEB (VA 737, SQ 744 & JQ 788) actually list as diverting to MEB so it was some sort of error with FR24.
I also took a look at the ERSA entry for MEB and found that the MTOW limit is 45T for all operations at MEB - exemptions are only for Defence and emergency need.
