My husband travels for work a lot and I am terrified of flying, so naturally I am a worried mess when he is flying too.
Today he is supposed to be flying to Atlanta and I checked the flight status a few minutes ago and it said that his flight has been diverted and landed in Columbia, SC over 30 minutes ago.
I thought that he might text me if he could to let me know what’s going on, but he hasn’t and I’m kind of getting worried to death. I don’t travel much so I don’t really know why a flight would be diverted.
ETA: I meant to post this in The Lounge, as it’s Not Wedding Related. Sorry!

There are a ton of reasons, weather being the most often seen. It is the weather in between locations that I have been diverted for. There is also health. I had someone on a flight once get really sick and they had to divert our flight to get that person medical attention.
I wouldn’t worry about it, I am sure it is not anything to worry about.

I’m right there with you (hate flying, Fiance travels all the time)
There are several reasons – weather (has happened to my parents several times), plane issues (has happened to FI), a passenger having medical issue, etc.
Hopefully everything is okay. I know from Fiance being diverted that it takes a longgggg time to get to next airport (or final destination). So if he’s coming home, he’ll be late (or likely late wherever he is going). Crossing my fingers for you.

Thanks tksjewelry and countrygirl62312!!
I guess I posted too soon, because he sent me a text just a few minutes ago saying that they had pressure issues on the plane. He will be boarding a new plane to Atlanta soon, and I sure will be glad when he gets there haha.
Your responses definitely reassured me! I worry wayyy too much.
