Plane Finder is reporting AF454 squawking 7700 and is returning to CDG. Anyone know what's happening?

Yes, I see him back on the ground again now, still showing 7700. False start. Not nice to have your long haul flight cut short like that when you just want to get on your way. Lets hope they get going again soon or another plane is fetched. If they can get another aircraft quickly, the same crew might still be ok.

The only thing worse than being on the ground and wishing you were at FL340 is to be at FL340 and wishing you were on the ground.
