Are as usual implying that no other airline in the world diverted because of mechanical problems that day? I would bet that at least one did.From all indications, the maintenance at NW/DL has been better continally since AMFA went on strike.Delta B738 near Omaha on Jul 26th 2011, smell of smoke in cabin

The cause of the smell is under investigation, a replacement aircraft is being dispatched to Omaha.
The NTSB have released their final report concluding the probable cause of the incident was: Brief and temporary blockage of the pitot probes in cruise flight, most likely due to ice crystals aloft, leading to erroneous airspeed indications and airplane automation degradation as designed.

Sure doesn't read that way. And yes all airlines are having maintenance problems. Working maintenance for an airlines was never a 9 to 5 job. The money made it worth while. Without the money people can do as well else where. If you were to pick up a industry magazine, flip through the pages you'll find article after article about this. Being an AMT is no-longer a good job !
