Fri Jul 19, 2019 8:22 pm

Got a FR24 notification, and looks like emergency descent. Anybody know what’s going on?

Given the descent to 10,000 feet and the fact that they are forgoing dozens of closer suitable airports to return to PHL, it smells like a pressurization or oxygen system issue to me.

It could be a pressurization issue. The return flight is cruising at 10,000.

It has declared an emergency according to LiveATC. Possibly additional issue? Might have had mask deployment.

Eerie to hear "79 souls on board".

Pilot on approach just called off emergency. Taxiing to gate upon landing.

It's not that eerie to hear. It's a term with a long maritime history that is used in part by tradition, and in part because it avoid confusion that can happen with other terms.

N101HQ just arrived here at PIT tonight from PHL, the aircraft that was operating AA4599. Didn’t go above 8,050ft on the ferry flight and went straight to Republic’s hangar.

It may be standard, but for me still eerie.
