F-GETA (cn 23413/632) Over the North Atlantic. Supposed to fly to Martinique on April 27th our flight got canceled after 7 hours delay because of a broken engine. The replacement flight took off Orly at 11 the next morning, but after 45min inflight some cabin pressure problems occured an we had to dump fuel an return to Orly. A once in a lifetime trip!
