Assume it had technical issue like many planes do every hour of every day...
737-300/400/500 ... are NOT classics :)

kimbra, your post doesn't make any sense at all.

In the title, you state that Air Belgium operated a flight on behalf of Air France due to an aircraft that had a technical issue, then in your question you state that the flight was cancelled and want to know what happened.

Well, did Air Belgium operate the flight for Air France such that the flight was NOT cancelled?

Where is LIB? Did you mean Libreville, Gabon; IATA identifier LBV?

The way that the poster kimbra has written his post it doesn't make sense whatsoever, not very well written.

But for those unaware Air France are leasing the single A343 operated by Air Belgium for a month until that aircraft is needed to start it's long delayed inaugural flight from Charleroi to Hong Kong in July.

Air France are leasing the aircraft from 01 June 2018 to 30
June 2018 and is operating daily on CDG-LBV.

Obviously in this circumstance the aircraft went tech just like any other aircraft does.

Finally figured out what this thread was about.

Avherald has a report up about it today.

Aircraft had a leak with the blue hydraulic system, detected two hours into the flight and carried on. Made a safe landing in Libreville.

Would it not have made more sense to air on the side of caution and put the aircraft down as soon as possible?
