CPA748 Problem at FAOR?

Good Afternoon Gentlemen.

My Dad Lives on Short Finals for 03R at JNB FAOR.
He just informed me about a possible situation with CPA 748 Scheduled from JNB - HKG

Im attaching a screenshot. It took off fr4om 3L and Circled about 6 times to return to JNB 03R.

Apparently 3L was closed for a while.

Our contact at ATC is not in today. Anyone have any info?
