Here it goes:
LY106, a Boeing 767-200ER that was on its way from LAX to TLV via YYZ got stucked in YYZ last night because of a mechanical. The flight will probably have a 13 hours delay.
This is causing more problems as the aircraft that was due to land at 16:55 in TLV, was scheduled to operate LY105 that departure tonight at 24:30 to LAX via YYZ.
LY deployed other 767 for tonight's departure, BUT, the replacment 767 is not capable of flying TLV-YYZ nonstop (lower MTOW) so the flight would stop at AMS on its way to YYZ and LAX... making it 21:15 hours to LAX...
Anyone from YYZ area with more details about the stucked airliner???!!
