CO126 Returned To Gate And Late Departure 14 Aug

Sun Aug 15, 2010 7:28 am

Hi all,

I was just wondering if anyone knows why CO126 (KEWR-EIDW) seemingly left the gate at Newark relatively on time but returned shortly after (as per Continental Flight Status and Flight Aware), only to depart again and is scheduled to arrive in Dublin at 1020L, instead of 0920L.

I assume it didn't take-off and return as weight restrictions would mean a lengthy fuel burn before returning...

Any information is appreciated with many thanks.

Initial delay was for 'cargo loading', the ground return was for a Mx issue of unknown sort..Then out again and off ....
Working very hard to Fly Right....

I was working this flight. We had no water in the lavs or galleys during boarding, decided to push back and taxi in the hopes that water would eventually start working...which it didn't. Did a quick gate return only to find out there was some external air/water pressure valve that wasn't shut properly.
