It was a paperwork issue resulting in 247 very p*ssed off passengers.
This was nothing to do with the crew, I believe they received a ACARS message to return to base when they were nearing the...

Looks like all the composite parts (flight control surfaces, wing to body fairings etc.) have been removed. There are no composites in the main structure of the A330.

One of the first things I do when jump seating (positioning/ferry flight or freight) is to offer the crew a tea or coffee.
It's the polite thing to do :)

I agree, it's a shame.
It's not a bad aircraft to fly on, certainly there's plenty of space in the cabin although I think it was a bit noisy.
Any crew I spoke to loved flying them !
It's a pity...

I think Brussels Airlines had the highest hour & cycle A330, OO-SFM, MSN 30.
Like EIN their A330 fleet would average 3-4 cycles per day.

Abidjan would not be a problem.
Air France have a maintenance line station there and there's plenty of reasonable hotels nearby for the pax.
Seems like a perfectly reasonable decision to me.

Sounds about right.
I can only base this assumption on the two mid week flights I took with BMI on the same day, on both flights the aircraft was maybe 30 - 40% full.
Strangely enough, if I didn't...

Very true,
I would also add that this arrangement (financial or otherwise), would have probably put some quite considerable pressure on Mr. Ibbotson to "get the job done".

That will be for the AAIB to decide.
Unfortunately, if what has been discussed here regarding Mr. Ibbotson's licence privileges turns out to be true, he'll most likely become the scapegoat.

Ryanair tried the same, it p*ssed off SLFs but more importantly (for FR) the boarding took longer. It didn't last long, they scrapped the idea when they became new caring, sharing Ryanair.
