TOM060 Delayed Departure

TOM060 (B788 Gatwick to Grantley Adams) scheduled departure 0950 engine system alert on taxi, returned to stand, now awaiting tug prior to engine restart. Heres hoping the gremlins have been dealt with!

I am not sure this is "news" - there must be dozens of aircraft around Europe that all returned to stand at the same time as yourself - I suspect this is destined for a rapid transfer to Spectators Balcony!

I heard that on another flight they ran out of chicken. Just as exciting, really.

Oooh Chicken? what's that, on the worlds favourite? airline yesterday, it was an M & S cheese wad, with burnt bean coffee. The wheels have definitely fallen off.

Some of us can only dream of chicken, in any form.
