KLM 663 is at Gander. Can anyone find out why?

It's a scheduled flight from AMS to IAH.

Medical or MX emergency?

Maybe even just re-fuelling.

Thanks
Mike

That's the PrivatAir B737 flight operating for KLM. I would think that it would be a tech stop or medical stop.

Or maybe it was denied to US airspace for another passport data problem?

All I know HB-JJA/KL0663 left around 50 minutes late ex AMS for technical reasons: guess the passengers will be VERY happy, first departing late and now with the stop in Canada as well  Wink

More if they paid like USD4000 for their ticket. I would get angry as well. I guess KLM has to give them some kind of compensation.

Why should an airline give one compensation for having to make an unplanned stop somewhere so the aircraft can continue safely onwards? So what if the aircraft was delayed 50 minutes in AMS, it happens, live with it.

Didn't EU pass some type of a law stating that passengers have to be compensated if their plane arrived so many hours late? I was even compensated for a Thalys ride from AMS to Paris Nord for being 3 hours late.



The fun of flying... love it !!!

Yes, there is indeed some kind of law..., however it's hardly possible to get a compensation for a delay or cancellation. There is something called SMALL PRINT. Airlines don't have to pay in case it's beyond the airlines control and according to the "small print" almost EVERYTHING is beyond the control of the airline. I had an issue with KL about a cancelled flight to AUA and got NO compensation, because the airplane had a technical problem (caused due to a lightning strike) and KL's small print states that it is beyond their control. Too bad....I must say though that I think that it's a kind of childish to demand all kinds of compensation for a delay....Whatever the airline will pay, you can never turn back time...it's and will always be lost...
I rather prefer a delay or rebooking (in case of cancellation) than an accident...

It was NOT unscheduled. Before departure from AMS it showed the stop in Gander; so I guess it must have been a fuel stop.

The aircraft actually went into Goose Bay(CYYR), not Gander. It was a medical emergency and required a brief fuel dump in order to facilitate landing

There is no fuel dump on the 737

It's now standing with some technical problems on a remote stand at AMS. Could this have something to do with this case? KLM Line Maintenance is working on it...

Ahh, sorry... I misread. There was 747 flight that was in Goose for a medical diversion, I thought it was the same flight.
