I don't know why this story was down-voted. Those controllers saved three lives and deserve recognition for what they did.

This appears to be the flight in question (two tracks):

You have many now on here that are just as they call them trolls making stupid comments. One that annoys me is the constant ones about who is winning the airliner race.

Yep, old post. Kinda makes you wonder why file a route nearly 1400 with a a/c range of about 1550. Not a lot of room for issues like w/x, warm air aloft, tailwinds less than expected, lucky people. Kudos to ATC.

1,400 on a 1,550 range a/c is one thing, but 1,400 on a 1,550 range a/c where the last 1,200 or so is open water is foolish - and that's the kindest word I can use.

Air traffic controllers never get enough credit.

Yes, and for many years it was a GS-5 job, lowly paid. When I worked a FAA Hq in Washington, we had several veterans, all with stories about Indianapolis Center (heavy for overflights) on holidays. One man was also an ex-USAF pilot instructor; and I was very much flattered one day when he told me I should get a license.

Congrats to the controllers. But this occured in November of last year.

The union convention is soon, they drug this back up to honor the controllers at it.

I've listened to ATC chatter, both routine and emergency, and have a lot of admiration and respect for the ATC folks. Ditto for the ladies and gents on the flight deck. Teamwork!

I just searched the tail number here... in the three days following this event, the aircraft was flown - in 1:45 to 2:40 legs - to West Palm Beach, FL... and hasn't moved since. That has me as curious as any other aspect.

I am curious as to what the actual fuel calculations were and reserves. What was the contingency plan? Those en route winds that time of year can wreak havoc on your planned fuel burn. Kudos to the ATC folks.

I wouldn't go THAT far. I would expect he has had a little 'counseling' by the FAA by now, however.
