AS753 RDU-SEA diverted to STL

Thu Dec 07, 2017 5:43 am

People on here seem to know why planes are diverted. Just curious why this one was. Already over Iowa when it back tracked to STL. Only on the ground about an hour. Medical?

Thanks.

Wouldn't DSM have been a lot closer?

I doubt with medical that DSM not having AS has anything to do with it?
It might have been that they were pretty much over DSM and it was easier to go to straight into STL for descending wise instead circling down to DSM?
