Delta 837 April 13th - returned to ATL

Any idea why DL 837 was diverted back to Atlanta today?

No idea for the diversion, but I was on this plane, N838MH, coming from HNL on DL836.

HNL ops have been interesting:
- DL576 diverted to Detroit on Thursday morning due to snow at MSP, causing DL577 to be ~6+ hours late to HNL (N838MH)
- DL576 was cancelled on Friday due to issues [technical?] (N842MH)
- Delta recovered by sending N835MH from Atlanta this morning to MSP for DL577. They had planned for N842MH to do an MSP run at 1PM Saturday (9xxx number), but it appears this was scrapped.
- DL837 returned to Atlanta and the aircraft was swapped (N843MH for N838MH) which had just returned from ILM - either maintenance or storage it appears
- N842MH to MSP and N835MH to ATL have now provided full recovery. So, I'm interested in what N843MH does. Will they just ferry back or are there still passengers from the Friday MSP cancellation? We'll just have to wait and see.

Nevertheless, an interesting 48 - 72 hours for HNL ops.

ILM = Wilmington, Delaware? Is this airport big enough to handle aircraft that can fly USA east coast/Midwest to HNL?
