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.

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?
