UAL diverts due to PAX objection to IFE content
« on: April 05, 2013, 12:37:18 PM »
Does anyone have the tapes from Chicago/Cleveland ARTCC, O'Hare approach (or UAL private comms, if available) for this incident? I'd be interested to hear the reasoning the PIC gave ATC for the diversion, considering the PAXs were escorted off the aircraft by armed officials...

This was UAL638 on Feb 2nd, DEN -> BWI.

Looks like they were halfway across Indiana when they diverted.

I'll see if I can piece together the conversation with ARTCC and ORD Approach now that I have an approximate landing time. Wish me luck.. this is my first go at it

The archives are only available for 30 days so any audio for this flight on Feb 2 is unfortunately no longer available.
