Judging from the fact that they've already filed to continue on to LAX (at 0950 local), a medical issue or an unruly passenger would be the two logical guesses.

The flight track was needed to lose altitude for a descent into IAH for a medical diversion.

With due respect, operationally, that doesn't make much sense...

It doesn't take that long to get down, and at the point which their original FLL-LAS route changed (around JAN), BTR, JAN, and MSY could have all served as landing points.

What's not known are what the actual medical sitiation and condition of the pax (i.e. the level of "urgency"). A long FLL-LAS flight would have most likely had them landing at JAN, BTR, or MSY over max structural landing weight (MLW) whereas landing at IAH (being further) perhaps did not. Maybe those turns NE of IAH were to get that last bit of fuel burned off to make MLW at IAH.

No it doesn't make much sense, only passed along information I was told when asked about the divert! That is what I get for listening to a, oh never mind!  Smile

I gotta ask: an FLL-LAS nonstop that's filed via MEI and LIT? Were the enroute winds or other weather that bad where they had to file that far north? I'd figure a bit more of an LEV-LCH/AEX-MAF-FLG-PGS-type routing...

Didn't a DL 777 (ATL-LAX) divert to ABQ about a month ago for the same reason????

Yes. DL 152 (LAX-ATL-TLV) diverted due to medical.

ABQ is a great diversion airport for large AC due to lots of really long runways here due to Kirtland AFB attached to airport.

Not an overwater ac? no vests? flt att's not qualed for overwater? rotten weather in the gulf? That's 4 good reasons.

....cept the weather over south Louisiana (at least) today was fine. Even flights that go around the corner of the Florida panhandle (a/c that aren't over water equipped) and then out west take more of a westward routing as opposed to a northwest routing. Wind/jetstream avoidance reasons I'd buy today...t-storms I don't believe were a factor this morning.

Best winds routes change from day-to-day due to the jet stream. This time of year, (using BWI-PHX as an example), some days I'm going via MKE, some days via STL, and some days via HOU.

I knew it had to be a jetstream issue. The local weatherman last night depicted the jetstream as currently crossing the deep south (including over LA) pretty much due east-west. Winds up north must've been so much lighter as to make what amounted to a 200-mile detour advantageous.

And the flight planning computer(s) look at shortest route/high winds versus longer routes/lesser winds, and let us know which has the lowest fuel burn/time.

It's that time of year... Fortunately, I have a "tailwind" desk later this afternoon...all my flights are eastbound...  Wink
