EK 2698 LAX-DXB A388 divert to SFO 3/15

Sun Mar 15, 2020 11:41 pm

Anyone have details on this? Just curious, thanks. Looks like over Monterey they broke off route and went into descent and straight-in landing at SFO. Emergency?
Just here for the free peanuts.

LAX-DXB is EK216 and is currently airborne.

Did you see this on FR24?

It is A6-EOM.

Flew into LAX as EK215, repositioned LAX-SFO as EK2698 and is now en-route SFO-DXB as EK226.

The crew originally meant to operate EEV back from SFO had some sickness below minimum legal crew complement.
A6-EOM positioned up to rescue, and the 216 was operated by EOD which was already in LAX from the 13th.
