He should have been stopped before boarding, but I expect much.

Got the direction wrong. Diverting it before approaching the U.S. makes sense.

“Aeromexico flight from Paris to Mexico diverted to Montreal following security incident”
Monday, May 31st, 2010 at 12:48 am
By Javier Mines

MONTREAL, CANADA (BNO NEWS) —

SNIPPET: “Aeromexico flight 06, operated by a Boeing 767-300, was diverted to Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport after being denied access to U.S. airspace, a source told BNO News. One person – who may have been on the no-fly list – was taken into custody aboard the plane, the source said.

A witness on board the plane, Mexican senator Francisco Javier Castellon, said the passenger arrested was an Arab-looking man and was on seat 23H.”

The remaining passengers were all asked to deplane and were searched. The aircraft then resumed its trip.”

Comments from our Canadian friends(?):

bookem5 wrote:

I see the right wing side still has no idea of where they are or what's going on. charlestailor writes "Personally I would sooner have someone on a no fly list OFF my plane before we headed out over the Atlantic. " The article clearly says they were going from Paris to Mexico city. Now I guess that if we listened to the Americans who think it makes sense to land in Montreal when flying from France to Mexico, then we can understand how Mr. Right Wing thinks the Atlantic will be crossed after you get to Montreal rather than after. I have a real problem with the Americans controling who flys where when their country isn't a starting point or destination. Also wy are we their dumping ground. Montreal is definantly not on the way from France to Mexico.

PS please dont bother pointing out to me that there are flights that take round about ways to places and not in a straight line. the article says that it had to land there so it was not "on the way".

>> HOW THE HELL DOES ANYONE ON THE NO-FLY LIST GET ON A PLANE????????

Next time you’re at the airport, take a careful look at the Rhodes scholars manning the TSA checkpoints. Eavesdrop on their wide range of conversational topics — intellectual “security oriented” stuff like: “who’s on break”, “when am I gonna get my break?”, “Alfonso been on break all damn afternoon!”, “dang, it’s only three PM!”, and other highly technical topics pertinent to our nation’s first line of defense against terrorism.

Then check back in and we’ll see if you’ve gotten the picture.

Recently I was stopped by two TSA agents. First agent askes why I had bacon bits, “You planning on making a salad?”

“Nope. It’s for terrorists.”

Second agent says “What does bacon have to to with terrorism???”

First agent gives him a ‘you idiot’ look...

From France to Mexico by the Great Circle route could easily overfly canada. Anyway, we have read that canada is the most friendly country to immigrants.

Canadian authorities blaming Paris, France. Said they should have checked the lists back over there. As for those who call themselves Canadians in the remarks, I would venture this.

'Tiz not your royal bottoms ensconced in a seat in that aircraft. Not you breaking out in a sweat

Like one Canadian said, he did not want to be flying with a "no fly" passenger. The know it alls jumped on him.

At one point the aircraft may have had more of the Atlantic ocean to cross. I hope that the Mounties (who have had a bad Canadian press lately) find out something really valuable.

The Great Circle route from Paris to Mexico City goes "feet dry" over Labrador, then over Nova Scotia, then wet again until it crosses over approximately Boston. Then it heads towards Mobile Bay were it again goes feet wet. It cross land somewhere around Tampico and then on into Mexico City.

A diversion to Montreal is a little odd, they often stop in Labrador for fuel, but perhaps Montreal had better security than Goose Bay or wherever they'd land in Labrador or Nova Scotia.

But diverting to Montreal is not that far off their nominal flight path. Would it be better for the plane to have been taken over and then "diverted" to New York City, which of course is also pretty nearly on the flight path, as is Washington DC.

“Man arrested on warrant after flight diverted”
By DOUGLASS K. DANIEL (AP) – 56 minutes ago

SNIPPET: “WASHINGTON — An Aeromexico flight from Paris to Mexico City was diverted to Montreal on Sunday when the U.S. denied the flight access to its airspace after a man named in an outstanding warrant was reported aboard, an official said.”

Thanks for the update Cindy.

This puts to rest the criticism of the diversion by persons who sit comfortably with their computer and armchair quarter back. Those saying the plane should have flown on and let the Americans deal with it. The man could have gone beserk in the interim, for all anyone knew. He was got to the point of safety as quickly as possible.

To be followed with some interest. The authorities did right. Kudos to them.
