I have a relative on DL22 ATL-CDG tonight. It's been delayed for several hours, and I originally thought it was because the inbound aircraft was late. Looking at the Flightaware track it appears that DL 29 made it almost halfway across the Atlantic before turning around and going back to Paris. I would think if it were a mechanical problem or a medical issue they would have gone to Shannon. What gives?
Also, it looks like 29 was on a 763 and 22 is on a 333, so that's not what delayed 22. Anyone know what's going on with it?
