KLM 606 SFO-AMS 28 Hour Delay On Aug 3

Mon Aug 06, 2007 5:07 am

I was surprised on Friday night coming back into SFO to see KLM still at the A gates. Looked like a cowling was open on one of the engines. By the time I got outside, it had been moved away from the gates to where Qantas is usually parked during the day when not headed to Vancouver.

Saturday I was near the airport and noticed KLM was still there. Flightaware indicates it left as 608 around 7:30 Sat. night.

What happened with the pax? Was it an engine issue? It was cool to see the big blue hanging out at SFO.

My guess, a 747!

Boy... 2 incidents for KL coming out of SFO in the last month (remember the fuel dump over the central valley...). I'm flying this route on Aug 30. Fingers crossed...

yes, it's been a 744 for a few months now, had been the MD11 before that.
