Aeroporto di Roma website says the flight hasn't arrived yet, and it should have arrived at 4:40am local time. Hope everything's okay...

It is supposed to layover for an hour before heading to MXP... Skipped MXP too and heading for GVA/PAR/LON....

They're saying its in a 2000fpm descent now. Looks like that should get them near Paris, correct?

Weather in Rome appears to be clear at 11C, so what else could it be? It doesn't look like a weather diversion.

Could it be Olympics-related? Geneva is HQ to the IOC. Praying for them. They seem to be holding descent at 25k ft.
My other plane is an A380.

They already flew much farther than intended, so I don't know why they'd need to dump fuel. I guess they are dumping altitude in loops?

If I heard right they just said they have 35 min of fuel left.

Looks like they are doing another loop while waiting for authorities.

Were they not supposed to take on fuel at FCO? 35 mins plus all of the fuel that they have burned seems like an awful lot to carry in reserve.

Still waiting for response from Swiss authorities?? Holding at 7000 with only 35 mins on board. The pilots are so calm yet.

Controller said everyone was sleeping so the delay...

Why do they refer to him as KK001? Is this some normal procedure to change callsign when hijacked? Or is that another airplane maybe air force escorting them?

ATC talks about a "request", did anyone hear what it was?
While pilot is holding at FL 70, he seems to be descending at 100 ft x min.
They have requested to hold over VOR-DME PAS, much closer to airport.
Other to radar signals at GVA seem to be frm emergency aircraft or vehicles.
My other plane is an A380.

The listeners on this ATC station has gone up 10 fold since I first noticed and posted.
