That same day, the HiFly aircraft operated MAD-FRA-MAD, probably because of some maintenance issues with the A340.
They do that occasionally. When I noticed it, I was at FRA
705 to MAD
had just departed, operated by a third-party 767. I met someone from the LA
ground staff on the people mover to Terminal 1, asked him about it and he said that LA
704 from SCL
had arrived at MAD
with a huge delay. Therefore, it couldn't fly to FRA
and back without carrying over the delay, so the airline chartered another aircraft to get people from FRA
- probably did the same or similar for those going the other way.
Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.
