Pretty fast response to get a 777 from ATL-BOS in the middle of the night. For reference that replacement A/C departed from ATL about 20 minutes after the broken A/C landed in BOS.

It was actually both. It was a airframe vibe and a passenger was having a severe anxiety attack and the flight declared a medical emergency.

Was looking at the tail number that diverted on flight aware and plane finder and it appears that this aircraft is the same one that had the emergency en route to Shanghai and would up dumping fuel during the emergency landing in LAX. Seems a little bit suspect to have two mechanical issues that resulted in diversion/emergency landing of the same aircraft. Does anyone have any thoughts about this?
USAirwaysfan wrote:Hi Eamondzhang, thanks for the reply. You are correct, it is still sitting in LAX now; however, I think you may be thinking of the two flights in the wrong order. The DL148 diversion occurred on January 9th. The aircraft then flew several more missions until the 14th, when the Shanghai flight returned to LAX.
