VS15 LGW-MCO Diverts to IAD

VS15 is currently on approach to IAD. It was originally scheduled to go to MCO. Any word on why it diverted?

OZ 222 trying again. And in.

Issue is also RVR - Runway Visual Range. Only around 1000 feet and when combined with shear below threshold for some.

The NextGen approach from the west does not seem very efficient.

That seems like a lot more fuel burn than just flying straight in above IAD a...
