Seems that one Boeing 767-200ER from US is having trouble to depart from GIG back to CLT since wednesday, having US at this time, cancelled the flight on Wednesday, tried again to depart yesterday, but had to return back to Rio.
Thursday flight departed on time (with the aircraft that come from CLT on Wednesday night)

There's also some news about this issue on Rio's newspapers

Any one have further info on this ?

Rio - Finalmente, por volta das 16h30m, os 190 passageiros do voo UF 801 da US Airways conseguiram embarcar do Aeroporto Internacional do Rio de Janeiro/Galeão - Antonio Carlos Jobim. Um avião extra foi disponibilizado pela empresa para transportar os passageiros rumo a Charlotte, nos Estados Unidos, depois que a aeronave onde estavam, ter retornado ao Rio por duas vezes entre quarta e quinta-feira, devido a problemas técnicos.


Rio - Finally, around 16h30min (local time), the 190 passengers on US Airways flight US (news mistake) 801 got to board from Rio de Janeiro International Airport. An extra plane (?) has been provided by the airline to transport the passengers to CLT, in the United States, after the aircraft where they were, have returned to Rio twice between wednesday and thursday, due to technical problems.

Thanks! It will be interesting to find out what the actual problem was. And the fact that they could fix the first time time and still let them atempt the fight a seconf time is kinda scary.

Rio is reportedly very hot these days.

Yes, but the plane departs late night not during the day. It's suppose to be mild at night and the first problem took place during late night.

The temperature on the ground is hardly relevant. Once the plane is in the air, the temperature goes well below aircon levels, There must be something more to this story.

I agree, and with the engines working the cabin temperature goes down quickly in flight. If they return to the airport, need to be because of other issue, otherwise they would depart at 5 AM and all would be okay. Plus while preparing for board, airlines would use a portable unit to maintain cabin temperature lower for passengers.
Shall be a ' NO GO ' situation.

Maybe showing my ignorance here, but isn't air con run from the packs and the packs also are responsible for the pressurization right? Maybe turning back was the prudent thing to do if the crew thought that some other part of the system might quit too?

Could this be the reason why the US flight from CLT-FRA was cancelled last night?

Air conditioning doesn't just mean, cooling the air, it means conditioning the air. So if that isn't working we may be talking about a very hot airplane on the ground and a freezing on in the air. IMHO. And then there is the following.

If the US fleet do not have a free frame as reserve plane, yes as CLT-GIG continued the other days as it's a very hot week to/from GIG because of the Carnaval.

A/C is 248. Two problems - Packs Malfunctioning (not sure exact reason). The other major one which is probably the reason for the return is that the FO ALT split.

Doubt it. That flight is a 333. It was probably because of the snow we had here last night.

Just pass at GIG and the 762 is still there. There's 2 B762 at GIG right now.

They are for sure not in that much of a hurry to repair the 762. Until IATA Summer begins, they have 762s to spare.

Well, it looks like they fixed whatever was wrong. N248AY is showing departed from GIG and is tentatively scheduled to operate US800 tomorrow.

Well, I was at GIG yesterday and I saw two US 762 on the ground, meaning that the aircraft is completing 11 days grounded at GIG.

Incorrect. Flight 801 of the 19th cancelled which is why you saw two aircraft. Ship 248 is currently in PHL.
