Long Day for Southwest Crew


#1

Flight 1834 on Sunday had 2 more landings than anticipated. The second leg of the flight, BNA-SAT was diverted to HOU due to that RJ’s grassy excursion at SAT. While debating whether or not to visit the FA office (I would), they got the blessing to head to SAT. Next flight, SAT-ELP, circled outside El Paso for weather, finally diverting to ABQ. After a short stay in the Land of Entrapment*, they finally got to ELP to end the day, about 4 and a half hours late.

I was just wondering, how often does the (assumingly) same crew have to make 2 diversions on 2 seperate legs within 5 hours?

*Ever gone thru a New Mexico construction zone?
