Currently at YYZ INTL MLL. Looking out the window, AC 062 from ICN landed on 24R, rolled to the end of the runway and is sitting there. Lots of flashing lights and buses waiting at the terminal. Itís been sitting there for about 20 minutes. They are now using 24L for landings so not an airport issue.

I was on this flight I was shocked that they did not divert the flight as this was only one of three total instances on this flight there where also two medical emergencyís on board.
One with a diabetic for blood sugar and the other was a guy who they could not find a pulse and thought had stopped breathing they had to have him on oxygen the rest of the flight the craziest part is when we landed the guy did not want medical attention and wanted to board his connecting flight.

QUOTE=kangarooflyer88;36246594]Saw this gem appear in my newsfeed from the AFP (Australian Federal Police and not Australia's Funniest Police as some on this forum might think):


Aside from the obvious fact that you generally cannot open a plane door at altitude (the only exception being aircraft made by McDonald's Douglas such as the MD-737 or the MD11) one does wonder why AC chose to continue on to Sydney given the incident occurred two hours into the flight. I suppose they reckoned they could contain him for this flight. And you gotta feel sorry for Air Canada too, not only do they have to put up with him for the outbound to Australia but now they gotta deal with him on the return (since he's a Canadian citizen abroad).

Does anyone know why AC57 (DXB-YYZ) diverted into YYT this morning (May 28)? It appeared to change course off the Scottish coast … if there was an issue, why continue across the Atlantic and not just put in to GLA or DUB?

EF isn't too helpful. It just says "non-scheduled maintenance" and about a 90 minute delay on the ground at YYT.

Gotta love that FT has an on-site first-hand observer for every incident

Only speculation on my part........
Premeditated crew change? One pilot took sick in DXB and there wasn't enough duty day for 3 crew to get to YYZ?

Supporting evidence?
Flightaware doesn't show diverted as it often would if there was a diversion.
Flightaware flight plan terminates at a fix NE of YYT.
If YYZ was the flight planned destination, a route into YYZ would show up.
The flight was on the ground in YYT 1:20.
Not really enough time if there's a mechanical issue.
Enough time to get gas and change crews.
Flight left DXB 45 minutes late. That cuts into duty day.

Would it show a diversion if the crew were fine, and the unexpected stop was simply to offload a passenger with a medical issue before continuing the flight?

ĒAir Canada flight AC43, scheduled to depart for Toronto, received a bomb threat via email just before leaving Delhi on Tuesday night, according to media reports, amid a string of similar incidents reported in the past few weeks.Ē

ďAn email was received at 10:50 pm by the Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) office at IGI Airport regarding the threat of a bomb inside an Air Canada flight. After standard security protocols, a thorough inspection was conducted and nothing suspicious was found.Ē

(the flight was cancelled)

AC 872 returned back to YYZ after take off.

Probably engine fire. We were returning home and saw sparks or fire coming out of the engines as the plane was taking off.

Internally, the engine is supposed to be on fire.
