KLM A330-300 PH-AKA stuck in YYC

Sat Jul 28, 2018 7:10 pm

Does anyone why KLM A330-300 PH-AKA is in Calgary. It came in a couple of days ago from Amsterdam and its return flight was cancelled. According to FR24 it’s still there. Thanks

It was cancelled due to mechanical issues. It was suppose to be ferried back to AMS yesterday, not sure why it’s still there though.

KLM operated a 2nd YYC-AMS flight on 29 July, to return PH-AKA to AMS following a 3-day technical delay.

- dep. 3.26pm KL678 YYC-AMS Boeing 787-900 PH-BHC - regular scheduled operation
- dep. 7.55pm KL674 YYC-AMS Airbus A330-303 PH-AKA - special flight number

There has been a campaign to have KLM to fly there 747 named Calgary to Calgary before it is retired. May be this is that opportunity?
