How can a american airlines flight leaves Santa Barbara to Dallas run out of fuel and land in Lubbock for fuel !n

American Airlines flight leaves Santa Barbara CA to Dallas Texas, Has to land in Lubbock Texas for fuel as they can’t make it to Dallas on a clear day !!!

Without knowing any specifics I’d say that winds aloft were not as strong as predicted. Or maybe there was a maintenance issue and AA just said it was fuel.
