What is this aircraft doing up here? Wierd track.

Emirates - UAE216 Way off the flight plan ?

Thought I heard this plane come over northern Canada last night and looked it up.
:question:

I don’t know where you are but looking at the flight plan it was supposed to get as far north as 81 degrees. The blue line is wrong.

Hi

Here in Vancouver, BC I quite often see the daily flights (three planes) between Dubai and Seattle, San Francisco or Los Angeles passing overhead or within ‘view’ of my ADS-B antenna. I assume it’s wind/weather as well as other traffic that determines their path variations. It’s late morning (PDT) for southward and late afternoon for northbound.
