42. Info on diverted flights
Unfortunately, the BTS doesn't give much useful information regarding diverted flights other than the fact they were diverted. Diversions are reported out of the departing city ONLY.

Example: These are the diverted American Airlines flights out of Boston that took off on September 11, 2001 but were diverted:

Airport:  Boston, MA - Logan International (BOS)
Carrier Code
Flight Number
Tail Number
Destination Airport

AA 09/11/2001 0153 N232AA ORD Yes
AA 09/11/2001 0189 N3BMAA SEA Yes
AA 09/11/2001 0269 N636AA SJC Yes
AA 09/11/2001 1663 N521AA DFW Yes
AA 09/11/2001 1857 N630AA DFW Yes

("Yes" means it was diverted.)

The total number of the records found for this query: 5

The only other information you can get regarding these flights is if you were to check scheduled departures for AA out of Boston. Doing that will provide additional information regarding what time the plane departed the gate and what time the aircraft took off from the origin city.

Unfortunately the BTS does not report the information regarding where the diverted flights were rerouted.
