UA918 IAD-LHR Going Back Into IAD Now!

Sat Dec 18, 2010 12:19 am

I have a friend due in on this flight in the morning but just looked on my iPhone app and see she is circling and going straight back into IAD.
Does anybody know what the problem is?

Could it be because of the bad weather in the area?

We are predicting snow here overnight but she had taken off, no way would they divert and go back into IAD because of that. Besides LHR might not be hit that bad. Defo had to be something else

Had an issue with an AC pack that was creating some noxious smell in the cockpit/fwd cabin. Pack could be turned off, however it was required operational for ETOPS so had to turn back.
