It seems like today's AF22 flight from CDG to JFK has declared an emergency and is returning to Paris.

It is currently flying holding patterns:

Anyone knows what the nature of the emergency is?

And it's still at FL110 circling. I imagine dumping fuel before its return to CDG.

According to Air France it's a "minor technical problem", although they don't say what:

AF22 back to CDG due to minor technical pbm. AF staff will assist passengers. New ETD at 2PM.
