    Another day, another international flight problem. First Ukraine, then Taiwan, now this.

    Little more can be found at http://www.nytimes.com/2014/07/25/w...rs-lose-contact-with-algeria-bound-plane.html. Still waiting for more updates.

    I heard some story about how they had requested a change of heading or something due to poor visibility on their flight path. If that's the case, it might be reasonable to think that had something to do with the crash.

    Diverted for weather, where the tops of the weather was roughly FL400. Service ceiling of the MD83 is 37000ft. Weather definitely would have played a factor here.
