The aircraft is still sitting here in KEF, resting infront of Icelandair Technical Service (ITS) hangar. A maintainance team from UA has arrived and they are currently waiting for spares being shipped in

Quoting UAORD2000 (Reply 7): Swiss Air 111 anyone? New IFE, Smoke in cockpit...sound familiar?
Seriously, it's quite a stretch. Just because a plane with a new IFE diverts because of smoke in the cockpit doesn't mean that:
-IFE wiring arced;
-Circuit breakers were not tripped;
-Flammable material allowed for the quick propagation of a fire.
If anything, the crash of Swissair 111 led to much stricter standards regarding wiring and the use of flammable materials.
