An American Airlines Boeing 787-800, registration N814AA performing flight AA-263 from Dallas Ft. Worth,TX (USA) to Beijing (China), was enroute at FL360 about 200nm east of Fond-du-Lac,SK (Canada) when the crew decided to divert to Edmonton,AB (Canada) due to a medical emergency with a passenger. On approach to Edmonton the aircraft suffered flaps and slats problems prompting the crew to declare emergency and enter a hold to burn off fuel (being overweight). While working the checklists the crew decided to divert to Calgary,AB (Canada) due to the longer runway available. Upon landing on Calgary's runway 17L at a higher than normal speed (about 192 knots over ground) the crew reported a nose gear steering issue, stopped on the runway and was met by emergency services. The aircraft was subsequently towed to the apron.
