Did all 58 pax have an hydraulic problem at the same time? Wow no wonder they turned the a/c around. At least you could not accuse them of piss poor inflight service.

You don't get it. The 58 pax pretended to have hydraulic problems to avoid going to Kabul.

Must have been one helluva dilemma for the Captain.......Kabul/Trabzon....Trabzon/Kabul?????????? I'm also having a problem thinking of a single reason why ANY airline would wish to use Trabzon as for a tech. stop. Anyway the crew will have plenty of time to ruminate on the wisdom of their decision while the AA tech. team work out how to get to Trabzon!

MoL would have been salivating - he could have made an extra 58 pounds on that flight from the coin-in-the-slot toilet doors....

Paradise Lost-
Trabzon is being used by the Airline as an operating base. There is a handling contract, tech support, and other crew if the operating crew go out of hours.

I usually do - frequently have a hydraulic problem at 4 a.m.
