New to flight tracking: Why would a flight do this?


#1

JetBlue 616;

Just curious what would be the reason for a flight to loop around like this en route:

The ’ loop ’ is requested by ATC to facilitate spacing / sequencing into KJFK.

Maybe they got lost. :unamused:


#4

Or the pilot was checking his house to make sure there wasn’t another car there…


#5

Oh, I hate it when that happens.

Finding or being found??? :stuck_out_tongue:
