    From Apple Daily HK.

    Basically the flight took off from JFJK and hours later they found out they ran out of water and has to divert to YYZ. They need to switch to another aircraft and the flight was delayed for 22 hours.

    The experts believe this is probably caused by maintenance oversight because if they forgot to refill the water tanks, they didn't have to switch the aircraft.

    Edit: Sorry my bad. Diverted to YYZ not YZZ as stated in the title.

    very odd that such a short diversion resulted in a 22 hour delay.

    Most likely something is wrong with the water tank. And there were multiple water tanks, it's indeed really odd

    I agree, there must be something more to the story.

    yeah, i agree - if it's just to refill water, i don't think it needs 22 hours. how can there be no water in Canada? haha j/k.

    www.avherald.com reports it as a "failure of the passenger water system", which sounds more like the sort of event that would trigger what happened.
