hi

the yesterday night flight to GRU has been canceled for a reason I don't know, and the 772 remained parked on the tarmac

so today the 2nd 772 arrived on normal shedule around 14.00pm
the plane was then immediately prepared to fly back to GRU-POA
since it was supposed to fly to AMS, pax flying there were disembarked and given AF tickets

anybody knows what kind of problem the 1st 772 encountered ?
it sucks : I'm flying on these babies next week and the other week too....hope they'd get back on the schedule by then

Hi.This is probabrly due to the gale force winds in AMS resulting in massive delays and cancellations.KLM sent a 744 to LHR an hour ago due to the backlog of passengers!

it's a possibility I hadn't thought about....

but considering the 772 didn't fly CDG-AMS-CDG for this reason, it wouldn't have prevented it from flying the CDG-GRU portion would it ?

It flew to AMS I think but then got stuck there.I can only think of one day when Varig flew the 772 to LHR that we got an M11 replacing it-good reliablity.
