A spokesperson for American Airlines explained, "The lavatories were inoperable, so we landed in Albuquerque briefly to service them, for the convenience of our customers. We apologised to our passengers for the inconvenience."

The Blade Runner star was arrested last summer (Aug11) after taking part in a sit-in demonstration outside the White House in Washington, D.C. in a bid to encourage U.S. President Barack Obama not to bow to oil lobbyists over the new Keystone XL pipeline project.
She was not charged over the incident, but Hannah reveals her career has suffered as a result of her activism - as conservative movie bosses don't want to be associated with an eco warrior.
The actress had been due to start work on a film in Canada this summer (12), but she was dropped amid claims her run-in with authorities had affected her immigration status.
In a series of Twitter.com posts, she writes, "WOW! I've just had another of several offers pulled due to my stance against Big Dirty Oil - Censorship!
"4 (sic) an Acting gig -1st they said since Calgary is 'An Oil Town' now saying cause I've been arrested Canada wont (sic) let me in but I have No Record... It's so ridiculous! But NOT at all a deterrent to speaking truth - just shows we're making waves!!!"
Hannah's Washington, D.C. protest was successful in putting pressure on Obama's government - in November (11), the leader and members of his administration announced the Keystone XL project would be subjected to a fresh review to determine the affects of the pipeline the climate, water supply, farms and local residents' health, before he makes a decision on the proposal.
The One Tree Hill star becomes a 30-something on 8 July (12), and she has asked fans to give cash to Pencils of Promise, which helps education facilities in the developing world, on her behalf in lieu of gifts.
Bush has set up an online donation page for her family, friends and fans.
She writes, "I'm turning 30 July 8th. I'm stoked. I'm ready. And I want it to mean something. Something big. Help me raise $30k for my 30th Birthday! All funds will go to Pencils of Promise to build a brand new school in Guatemala, and to change the lives of some seriously deserving kids.
"I have been a loyal supporter of (some might say obsessed with) Pencils of Promise for some time. My 30for30 fundraiser is part of a Pencils of Promise campaign called The Impossible Ones that will launch officially on August 1st. Everyone has an 'Impossible' - a challenge or milestone they're facing. PoP's Impossible is 100 schools in 2012. My Impossible is 30k for my 30th birthday.
"PoP rocks my world because they believe every child should have access to quality education. On a recent impact trip with Pencils of Promise, I met a group of young children in Guadalupana, Guatemala. I asked them what they wanted most in the world, and in unison they screamed 'a school!!' I knew I had found the village for this campaign.
"It will cost $30,000 to build the school and I know we can make that happen!"
The Grey's Anatomy star welcomed daughter Poppy last week (20Jun12), and has stayed off Twitter.com as she gets to know her newborn.
But the star took to the site on Tuesday (26Jun12) to express her gratitude for followers' kind messages while her tot was fast asleep.
She writes, "It's only fitting that my 1st tweet since having my beautiful daughter should be in the middle of the night... I'm in love all over again!
"Thank you all for your insane kindness and congratulations since Poppy's birth. It's been lovely reading your tweets! You all are the best!"
"Father's Day again. Although... I haven't got a daddy. Or a mummy. No one feels sorry for a 50 year old orphan. Sob. I'll be OK. Enjoy... mum died in 2000. Dad went soon after. He saw the 1st series of The Office tho and got drunk without being shouted at for a few months." British funnyman Ricky Gervais remembers his dad on Father's Day (17Jun12).
The Sex and the City 2 star was watching the England team take on France in the Euro championships in Poland on Monday (15Jun12), and made several comments on Twitter.com about the appearance of player Joleon Lescott, who was left with scars on his forehead after he was run over by a car aged five.
Djalili wrote, "I love u Lescott. Never said u were a deformity. Always rated him... To be fair a lot of forehead to aim for."
After England drew 1-1, he tweeted congratulations to the team but likened Lescott to a Klingon, an alien race who have large, ridged foreheads.
He added, "Bravo England, even though u give me 3 kinds of bowel disease watching you. Love Lescott. 1st Klingon at Euros."
Following a backlash from followers on the social networking site, he tweeted to say sorry: "Like to apologise to Joleon Lescott if any tweets made last night caused offence. No idea he's been injured in a car accident aged 5.
"Shouldn't make remarks about people's appearance wether (sic) they've been injured or not. Come on England!"

At the moment there are few greater clichés in the media than the freaking out single woman on the cusp of 30. Of course clichés are clichés for a reason worth exploring even through the lens of just one or two women as in Lola Versus. Unfortunately while the intention behind Lola Versus isn't that we should all be happily married by the age of 30 it still fits into the same rubric of all those "Why You're Not Married" books.
Lola (Greta Gerwig) has a gorgeous fiancé Luke (Joel Kinnaman) and they live in a giant loft together the kind of dreamy NYC real estate that seems to exist primarily in the movies. Just as they're planning their gluten-free wedding cake with a non-GMO rice milk-based frosting Luke dumps her. It's cruelly sudden — although Luke isn't a cruel man. Lola finds little comfort in the acerbic wit of her best friend the eternally single Alice (Zoe Lister-Jones) who is probably delighted to see her perfectly blonde best friend taken down a peg and into the murky world of New York coupling. Lola and Luke share a best friend Henry (Hamish Linklater) a messy-haired rumpled sweetheart who is kind and safe and the inevitable shelter for Lola's fallout. Her parents well-meaning and well-to-do hippie types feed her kombucha and try to figure out their iPads and give her irrelevant advice.
Lola Versus is slippery. Its tone careens between broad TV comedy and earnest dramedy almost as if Alice is in charge of the dirty zingers and Lola's job is to make supposedly introspective statements. Alice's vulgar non-sequiturs are tossed off without much relish and Lola's dialogue comes off too often as expository and plaintive. We don't need Lola to tell Henry "I'm vulnerable I'm not myself I'm easily persuaded" or "I'm slutty but I'm a good person!" (Which is by the way an asinine statement to make. One might even say she's not even that "slutty " she's just making dumb decisions that hurt those around her just as much as she's hurting herself.)
We know that she's a mess — that's the point of the story! It's not so much that a particularly acerbic woman wouldn't say to her best friend "Find your spirit animal and ride it until its d**k falls off " but that she wouldn't say it in the context of this movie. It's from some other movie over there one where everyone is as snarky and bitter as Alice. You can't have your black-hearted comedy and your introspective yoga classes. Is it really a stride forward for feminism that the clueless single woman has taken the place of the stoner man-child in media today? When Lola tells Luke "I'm taken by myself. I've gotta just do me for a while " it's true. But it doesn't sound true and it doesn't feel true.
In one scene Lola stumbles on the sidewalk and falls to the ground. No one asks her if she's okay or needs help; she simply gets up on her own and goes on her way. It's a moment that has happened to so many people. It's humiliating and so very public but of course you just gotta pick yourself up and get where you're going. In this movie it's a head-smackingly obvious metaphor. In one of the biggest missteps of the movie Jay Pharoah plays a bartender that makes the occasional joke while Lola is waiting tables at her mom's restaurant. His big line at the end is "And I'm your friend who's black!" It would have been better to leave his entire character on the cutting room floor than attempt such a half-hearted wink at the audience.
Lister-Jones and director Daryl Wein co-wrote the screenplay for Lola Versus as they did with 2009's Breaking Upwards. Both films deal with the ins and outs of their own romantic relationship in one way or another. Breaking Upwards a micro-budget indie about a rough patch in their relationship was much more successful in tone and direction. Lola Versus has its seeds in Lister-Jones' experience as a single woman in New York and is a little bit farther removed from their experiences. Lola Versus feels like a wasted opportunity. Relatively speaking there are so few movies getting made with a female writer or co-writer that it almost feels like a betrayal to see such a tone-deaf portrayal of women onscreen. What makes it even more disappointing is how smart and likable everyone involved is and knowing that they could have made a better movie.
