Diverted Flight [Aeronautics and Space] Law and Legal Definition

According to 14 CFR 234.2 [Title 14 Aeronautics and Space; Chapter II Office of the Secretary, Department of Transportation (Aviation Proceedings); Subchapter A Economic Regulations; Part 234 Airline Service Quality Performance Reports], Diverted Flight means “a flight which is operated from the scheduled origin point to a point other than the scheduled destination point in the carrier's published schedule. For example, a carrier has a published schedule for a flight from A to B to C. If the carrier were to actually fly an A to C operation, the A to B segment is a diverted flight, and the B to C segment is a cancelled flight.”
