I actually think our best chances for a KEF flight, lie in:

Thomson - winter seasonal
easyjet
Jet2 - if they were to start Iceland... Which I can see not too far off
Wow air
Icelandair (opb Air Iceland) - which I sincerely hope we DO NOT get

From what I've heard the divert was due to smoke in the flight deck , so yes probably fairly urgent!

A few years ago I had not long boarded a plane when smoke started filling the plane. I think I heard it was from the hydraulics but it was like mustard gas and I am b. pleased I wasn't at 30,000ft.

Looks like the bird is sick again - Departed Varadero yesterday evening for FRA, but didn't make Bahamas (33,000ft) before turning around to return to VRA 40mins later.https://www.flightradar24.com/data/f...e2198/#e3b3d64

Needs some downtime by the looks of it 3 Diverts in the space of a week is not good. D-ABUI has been on the ground for 17 days at MAN according to FR.

Jet2 to Prague today had a pressure problem. The media using the normal scare words to fill the headline banner.

Really bad PR for Jet2, 30 Year old aircraft losing cabin pressure twice in the space of a week will fuel these articles

I really wonder just how many pax would actually be comfortable flying in a 30+ year old aircraft if they were aware of this.
To me it's all too easy to simply say " we have excellent inspection & maintenance programs". These guys are pushing the boundaries, when most of the 73's that came off the production line at around this time are long gone.

I agree.
I get my car serviced regularly but I wouldn't want to be driving a 30 year old one without breakdown cover which, of course, wouldn't be much help at 30,000ft.
