Looks like it is departing again at 11:00 PM EST.

Any news on why it is coming back?

Where does it say it's departing at 2300?
I cannot see it. Is it information per delta.com?

Thanks

Well its after midnight and the flight still show as boarding on delta.com. Since the flight turned back for JFK before leaving the canadian airspace for the TATL crossing I have to guess that it is a MTC issue with the aircraft. They most certainly are changing aircraft and crews, hopefully a replacement crew was called shortly after the aircraft turned back for JFK.

Actually they are changing the crew but so far they only found 5 F/A. It looks like it is the same ship number (but it is MTC) and they suppose to leave at 12:20AM. I don't think it's gonna happen.

I will be on that flight few days from now. I think it is the second time in a month this is happening. I guess last time it was a sick passenger.

DL.com is showing it pushed at 2421 so they must have gotten a crew together.

Good question. I don't know how much rest they would get with just 5 crew members.
From what I am seeing, it did go out with just 5 and they pushed back at 00:21.
I guess set the breaks as three. 2-1-2. you really need more than 2 awake.

I don't get the crew legality issue. How long can a pilot or flt. att. work for a shift? I am a nurse, and if you think working over a certain am't of hours for a flt. crew is dangerous, does anyone care that many nurses have to work double shifts, (be there 16 hours) and there are no laws saying this is illegal. Think about this next time you or your loved one is lying in an ICU bed or ER bay!!!!

You raise an interesting point, actually, if a bit off topic.

Aviation is the industry that is the most focused towards safety, and in which, relatively, the most resources are spent towards said safety.

I read an interesting article (or editorial) some time ago that compared the safety culture in aviation vs. that in hospitals and the health care industry generally speaking. It underlined the irony of the severe scrutiny under which every airline was after any kind of incident while hospitals all over the world were allowed to run under very lax safety oriented measures that allowed many human errors to be made (many due to fatigued staff) and many patients to die unnecessarily, without much being done about it.

Funny thing, that when a person dies in an aircrash, the whole world stops in its tracks, people cry foul and demand increased air travel safety, yet when thousands of people every year die of medical (human) errors and diseases contracted while in the hospital itself, no one cares...

There should indeed be a public debate about the subject. Health care has much to learn about the airline industry when it comes to safety. Maybe starting a thread would be a good start...

since that is a no go item!

Depending on the number of lavs inop, but yes, definitely a big issue!

It is a big issue and if half of the LAV's are INOP on an aircarft that is a no go item. Thank god it is a no go item! Just imagine a 10 houres flight without working LAVs. worked on flights before with some INOP lavs and it is not fun, it is disgusting!

Delta had a rough evening yesterday with a few cancellation!

Again, dispatch ability depends on the specific MEL for that type and airline. The DDG usually specifies a max number of pax per operating lav. If you have less pax than that figure times the number of working lavs, then you're good to go. Although as you said it won't be a fun flight for many pax having to wait in line for an eternity and for the F/As having to keep those lavs tidy...

Lavatory drain pipes usually collect into 2 or 3 main collector pipes. If one of these gets blocked you instantly loose up to half the lavs so it's actually not that rare that several lavs go bad at once.

If the lavs get bad after take off, then it's the commander's decision to proceed or land, assisted by the manuals guidance and company ops, but anybody in his right mind who would like to avoid a sanitary emergency on board will definitely get back on the ground.
