In hold to burn off fuel ? Has a mechanical problem, sick pax ? Maybe a dumb ass drunk acting stupid? It will be interesting to see what happens.

I would think burning off fuel, but holding at 20,000ft so maybe pressurisation issue?

Aircraft is F-GSPV

Circling now at 20,000 feet, presumeably burning off fuel for landing. Could this be a mechanical issue or a medical emergency? Not an oxoygen issue as they would be a lot lower and hijacking is a different squawk.

Now it is squawking 5623 but it appears to be headed back to LFPG / CDG. When was this route 'downgraded' from a A388?

AF008 has never been a A388. You are confusing with AF006 / 007
