Table 2 in the link gives maximum Flight Duty Period. The crew had the hours (just), and the airport was due to open the runway for them. But the aircraft had a lighting strike on the way into Antalya that required an inspection, which then delayed everything.
Wizz Air Airbus 321 HA-LXD operating the service from Warsaw Chopin has diverted into Luton. The FR24 flight history shows a deviation towards LTN at the Dutch coast. Any ideas why?

METAR for LBA looks OK, so possibly a medical emergency? FR24 shows departure from LTN to LBA at 08:20, so less likely to be a tech issue.

The weather here is overcast with drizzle, but otherwise fine. Little in the way of wind. The other Wizz and two Aer Lingus ATR72s all landed ok, so yes, sounds like a medical emergency or a misbehaving customer . However if the latter, they may as well have come to LBA!
The flight departed Leeds an hour late which meant it wasn’t going to be back before 0100 when we had to close

Jet2 made an early decision to send the inbound to Manchester which meant the airport could close at 2300 to accommodate the runway repair teams
Welcome to the forum Threegreens, and thanks. Presumably the overnight repairs are due to finish very soon?
Further works are planned towards the end of the month consisting of overnight closures.

Being elevated in the field of Law does not make one immune from the troubles of medical life, apart from a long standing Brain issue, I have been diagnosed with Angina, a condition that actually hurts. I have no family and since my precious dog Peggy died, I have have no one to oblige myself. I am unwell, cannot avoid that so I wish you all well.
All set for a busy football weekend peeps?
A couple of tweaks here and there coming, keep an eye and see if you can spot the difference ;)
