KL726 SXM-AMS tech stop in ANU 1/19

Mon Jan 20, 2020 12:04 am

Anyone knows why KL726 made a tech stop in ANU today? 1/19? Presumably its for fuel as SXM often experiences shortage of Jet fuel from time to time. Oddly enough this flight also made a tech stop in ANU on 1/12. Back then there were quite a bit of high winds in the Caribbean which may have affected payload departing SXM.

AF499 SXM-CDG also makes tech stops in ANU or PTP from time to time.
You are said to be a good pilot when your take-off's equal your landings.

Terrain on the east departures combined with temp.

That much I know, but this is a 3xW flight and the A330 does it quite comfortably. Was just curious as to these tech stops in particular.
