777 in Sea

I saw a AA 777 @ the North terminal today. Any one have any idea why?
Thanks

AA288 PVG-ORD diverted to SEA for MX. Was scheduled to take off again at 15:00 but has been cancelled and will, according to the filed flight plan, run tomorrow SEA-ORD at 16:10.

Ditching, a crash, a pun on C class (not really applicable to AA, but still).

Amazing how much difference there is between SEA and Sea

I also thought something nasty had happened based on thread title.

Do the PAX from 288 fly the next day at 16:10 or are they re routed to another flight/airline?

Maybe they should have landed at the airstrip at Boeing! Still, you'd think if ever there would be a good place to land for a mechanical, SEA would be the place for a Boeing aircraft to get back en route.

SEA is actually better than BFI: A huge Boeing parts facility is just off the airport apron. The 777s are assembled at PAE which is about 40 miles north.

Perhaps while Boeing fixed the plane, they could give AA a loaner to complete the flight!

The gate area is a mini-lounge (more like a classroom, actually), and there is a cart that sells coffee (and there is WiFi). When it is time to board your flight, you walk out onto the tarmac and get on
