OA Emergency At JFK?

Sat Feb 17, 2007 11:40 pm

Just got off the phone with my sister who's currently in Athens. She said she heard on the Greek news there was an emergency at JFK involving an OA aircraft. Something about "a problem in the wing" (???), dumping fuel, and returning to JFK. I don't have any more information and can't find anything online. Anybody heard anything?

An OA flight 412 from New York - Athens had mechanical problems in the early hours of Saturday morning. It returned to Athens and made a safe landing and the captain said all crew and passengers are well. The A/C will head for Athens as soon as the problem is fixed. It does not state the nature of the mechanical problem.
