First of all, Hannover, not Hanover in the former allegedly united States of America...





Hanover is the capital city of the German state of Lower Saxony. It's known for trade fairs like the annual CeBIT tech expo. The red-brick Gothic Market Church and the Old Town Hall stand among half-timbered houses in the rebuilt old town. The ornate New Town Hall has views from its dome and 4 different scale models of the city through the ages. The 17th-century Herrenhäuser Gardens are just outside the city center.

I am sorry, but i am german and i know how our cities are written...


Here is the link to the official G E R M A N website of the city Hannover

In german, it´s HaNNover. And because it is a german city and their own official website and i guess they know how they are written, the following is just wrong:
"Hanover is the capital city of the German state of Lower Saxony."

I mean, just because in german London could be spelled Landen, i don´t say that Landen is the capitol city of the UK when i write about London in german. Or Niu Jork when i write about New York...

Sounds like a mechanical problem. The extra security is most likely because they didn't clear customs. They have to make sure the same number of people that were on the plane are on it when it leaves, and they didn't leave anything behind.

We would occasionally have people come in that weren't allowed through Customs for one reason or another and were put on a plane going back to where they came from. They'd be handed over to an airline employee escort, who usually turned them over to us. We had to go with them everywhere they went until they got to the gate to board the return flight.

I just got a text from her that she finally arrived. I still don't know what happened. She'll be here in an our or two and I can report. Thanks everyone and sorry.

Flightstats still out of order..


Any updates on this? I'd be curious to know what happened.

Did she arrive? No updates yet? Seems odd, and there has to be a cause. A mechanical issue, they'd tell passengers, and there would be no need for all that security. This is something else. Sounds like they were looking for someone, and wanted to keep track of everyone, maybe not knowing exactly who.

Well the story goes like this..

They told the passengers that they have to land in Vienna because of a sick passenger. They landed and had to stay in the plane for 3 hours. There were helicopters landing next to the plane and a lot of police. A doctor never came on the plane nor did a passenger get pff the plane as far as my friend could see. They never apologised and just took off 3 hours later.

This is so odd. Something was definitely up, but they never told the passengers. My friend wants to sue them

They rarely tell the passengers when there's a problem what the actual problem is. And good luck suing them. This is SOP for every airline.

Have to ask you to say 'Hello' to my fellow Hannoveranian. I am too from good old Hannover.
And yes, in english they spell Hannover as Hanover, like the house of Hanover but of course the real name is Hannover.
Hope your friend can shed some light on this. Sounded ominous and weird.

Let us know.

I do not know what airlines you are familiar with but when I flew we told the passengers why and what the reasons were for our actions. Mechanical, ATC delays, (always my favorite as out tax dollars kept paying for a messed up system)... I never had a bomb threat on one of my flights so that might be one scenario where I would claim our reason for a delay was because of something else...dunno just have to be there ?

Even during 9/11 I briefed the flight attendants and gave the same briefing to the passengers closing by saying they (the passengers) know as much as the flight attendants or myself. However the good news is since we can not return to America we will be landing in Cozumel; which we did and stayed for three enjoyable days.

I did have three Arab business men on board and they did ask if I thought they would get hassled when we returned to the states.. I told them I did not think so or no more than usual for it will take a while for the government to get their act together and sort this kinda of thing out..

After reading and hearing of some of the horror stories about crews and passengers being stuck on aircraft for three days I consider myself, my crew and passengers truly lucky.. I knew the station manager at Cozumel and gave her a heads up of our arrival with the crew and passenger count. We were over Jamaica when all this was going down so there was time for Cozumel to get their act together.. Everyone, passengers, crew, and me were in out nice hotels within 3 hours of our landing.. The station manage would call me every morning and every evening to give me the latest updates on when it was thought we would be allowed to return to America.

I never lied or covered up anything... Ooops I take that back.. One old lady was chewing on me for one of my flight attendants would not go to the ice box and get her a nice kosher egg.. (duh no order special meal service during booking then do not expect a special meal) I listened to her until she started wind down in her tirade and finally I just said, " Mam I will write up a report and thank you for telling me". She patted me on the arm and said thank you as she finally got off my friggen aircraft ! hahahh
