BA B-787 Stuck On Taxiway @PHL

Mon Jul 13, 2015 2:10 am

BA 69 stuck on taxiway for almost 2 hours now. Sounds like brakes are frozen up. Looking to bus the passengers in perhaps.

Electronic ABS brake actuators stuck in clamp down? Not fun.

Passengers are now being disembarked via mobile lounges. Outbound flight still shows just a delay but will most likely be cancelled.

No reason given.
Lucky it did not block the runway after landing.
