Only moderators can edit thread titles. Feel free to click the little red triangle button to alert them to the issue.

As for why it went around, my guess is that the plane ahead of them didn't clear the runway. Not sure why it matters, but that's usually why they happen.

Pick one:
- Clearance to land not received due to aircraft/vehicle still on runway.
- Wind gust +/- 15 knots triggered windshear alert in cockpit, mandating go-around.
- Stabilized approach criteria not met at either 1,000 or 500 foot gates.
- Instructed to go around by either approach controller or tower due to separation.
- Configuration issue which required completion of checklist prior to landing.

There are several reasons which require a go-around, so unless you get it straight from the crew piloting the aircraft, we'll be left to wonder.
