My friend was on LO 26 WAW-JFK this evening, and the flight has returned after 1:40 in the air. I have few cryptic texts from him - anyone has any more info?

Well if it returned, we know there wasn't a crash...

This sounds like one of those bad translations that makes my head hurt...

Air conditioning problems. Had to return to Warsaw, but I wouldn't say it was a "horror" though...

According to a polish aviation forum it was an air conditioning failure 1/2 hour into the flight. The aircraft burned (or dumped) fuel for an hour to return to WAW. A non-event, but demonstrates the age and condition of LOT 767 fleet.

Surely it could happen to any aircraft, operated by any airline?

Yeah, what does this have to do with the 767? And LOT for that matter? It's not like they are the first airline to return to the gate with a mechanical...

Yes, the text was written by a bit a drama queen.
I am sure the people on board the LOT Il-62s in 1980 and 1987 wished they just had an airconditioning failure.



nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

But it is noteworthy, that in the last couple of days a LOT happens with LOT 767's.
There was a brake fire in Chicago a week ago, they fixed or not fixed the aircraft and the plane left Chicago with just 4 hours ground time just to land in Warsaw and have again an brake fire.

I mean a fire on an aircraft is something to classify as serious I would say and that the damn thing was not properly fixed in Chicago due to whatever reasons (probably financially) may be an explanation for this.

People now may say that the planes are old etc., but there are many many airlines in the world who operate old aircraft very reliable and safe. The A/C problem may not be a real big deal after all, just that the aircraft is not serviceable for the journey over the atlantic.

This is just a minor mechanical malfunction that could happen to any airliner new or old. These sorta things happen everyday and its being blown out of proportion.

Correct me if I'm wrong but there are at least two packs, and you should be fine with only one working. Could they have T/O with one MELed, and the other one gave up in flight ? If so, then it's a little like with the AF 744 from Brazil that had a toilet problem.

This article says that it wasn't an air conditioning issue but a cabin pressurization problem.

True I was on NWA flight from DTW to LAX a few years ago and we had a similar situation with smoke from a/c coming in. The aircraft was failry new.
