2015-03-12: UPDATE; TSB Report#A15Q0031: On 22 January 2015, the Boeing 737-81D, registered as C-FFPH with 2 crew was on a flight from Moncton, NB (CYQM) to St. John, NB (CYSJ), with Quebec, QC (CYQB) as the alternate. After departing Moncton, the flight crew contacted St. John mandatory frequency to obtain a runway condition report. They were advised that the runway conditions were below the landing limits. After discussion with dispatch the crew returned to Moncton. Two approaches were attempted in Moncton which resulted in missed approaches due to weather and not having visual contact with the runway at minimums. After the second missed approach, the crew elected to divert to Quebec (CYQB). The fuel level on arrival in Quebec was trending towards minimum diversion fuel. The flight crew declared minimum fuel and requested priority handling inbound to Quebec. The flight landed at Quebec at 1305Z.
