DL154 JFK-MAN Returned To JFK 21JUN

Sat Jun 21, 2008 4:43 am

Seems like there's always someone on here who either knows or can find out what happened anytime something goes on, so I figured I'll ask.

I was listening to JFK Ground on LiveATC tonight and heard DL154 (757 to MAN) return to JFK as an emergency. When the flight landed, one of the emergency personnel reported to Ground that there was fuel coming from the left engine and asked for a dual-engine shutdown.

So, I'm curious... anybody know what the cause of the problem was?
Regards, Brad Williams

Too early to tell. The flight was obviously cancelled, as well as the return leg.
Change is: one airline, six continents!

O.K. first of all...DL154 on 20JUN was the flight that returned to JFK...not on the 21st.
You have to watch out for Z time which is 4 hrs ahead on the 21st.
Scheduled dept time was 2200hrs on 20JUN or 0200UTC (Z) on the 21st...

The engine had a fuel filter bowl pull out of the housing and cause the fuel leak.
Maintenance had to replace the fuel filter assembly.
