Most likely refuelling but can’t confirm.

Flightaware cites a flight time of 18:16 JNB-MCO and a very direct path, so fuel seems pretty likely.

It took a particularly heavy load out of JNB last night and left fuel behind to carry the load.

Looks like some serious headwinds, 18 hours for JNB-MCO.

Had to be the easiest re-crewing of a flight in the airline's history.
Look at sweatpants guy. This is a 90 million dollar aircraft, not a Tallahassee strip club
