KL 777 Waiting At AMS With 'water'-problems

Wed Jul 07, 2004 10:28 pm

I got just a call of a friend who is onboard of KL 777 at AMS waiting for take-off to GRU (Sao Paulo). The departure time is 13:55. But because of problems with the door for the water supply and with the water pressure they are still waiting. Now, it is 15:31 (Dutch time). I don't have a registration number available right now. Who can tell about these problems?

Just the usual airplane mechanical. I know with our 737's we get the problem once in a while where you can't get pressure into the water system. Shouldn't take long to fix, of course the 777 is a different bird. It happens to every airplane and any airline.

It might be a usual problem. But in that case the 777 seems to be a very different bird then. They are now (16:34) still working on it (already 3 hours!) and they just said to need 1,5 or 2 hours more. Problem is still the door for the water supply. They now want to take it from another a/c.
