TUI Boeing 767 OO-JNL returns to Brussels after take-off


Today’s TUIfly Belgium flight TB701 from Brussels to Santo Domingo and Montego Bay, which was already delayed by 24 hours, returned to Brussels after only 45 minutes flight.

At 09:15 (UTC+1) the Boeing 767 with registration OO-JNL was standing on a taxiway at the very end of  runway 25R with firemen inspecting the aircraft.

Yesterday the same aircraft OO-JNL taxied out to runway 25R for flight TB701 but had to return to the gate before take-off, member Passenger reported here.

On the website of Brussels Airport, the flight, whose number was modified to TB701B, was announced to leave at 11:00. It actually left at 13:43, more than 28 hours late, and with a different aircraft: a EuroAtlantic Airways Boeing 767 registered CS-TRN, that just came back from operating the BRU-MIA-BRU route for TUIfly Belgium.

It is not the end of the story: it is rumoured that the crew will need some rest at Santo Domingo before continuing to Montego Bay…
