Just discussing semantics here, but calling out a mayday seems to be a bit overdramatic considering the nature of the incident. No lives were in imminent danger. Maybe a "pan pan pan" would have been more appropriate.

I was just looking on flightradar24.com and El Al 318 seems to have returned to Heathrow before crossing the channel into France. I'm curious as to why this may have happened. It seems to be an emergency landing since the squawk is 7700.
