stablemate77, your statement is not accurate. There's a scheduled plane change in PHL as the flight number continues on to Pittsburgh.

it was on its way to pittsburgh soo guess was not real spot landed

PHL August 8, 2013

Was it an emergency landing if the original destination was PHL? Was the threat called just before it approached PHL? Otherwise, it seems they would have landed somewhere else enroute.
