flightaware.com/live/flight/SWA1 … /KSMF/KPHX

This trip is a two-legged flight that starts in Sacramento with a stop in Phoenix before contining on to Raleigh.

The plane is currently (1949 Eastern 2349 Zulu) over greater LA and
the route that was filed was a plan that with Frogo6 (Sacramento to Southern California not Arizona) any idea why this flight would go through
greater LA instead of over NV?


#2

It has the ARLIN3 STAR which is to PHX. If a flight was diverting, would it show the diversion airport even when the flight hasn’t landed at it?

Their usual route had/has bad wx (DRK is on J92, IIRC), so the ATCSCC moved traffic around the storms:

For reroutes, you can also do fly.faa.gov/ois/ click on the plus next to “NSST”, then click on “Current Reroutes” to see the active major reroutes. Tactical reroutes won’t be listed here, and it is a bit more hit-or-miss to find out the reason why a specific plane was moved if it wasn’t part of a playbook or long duration reroute.
