Brussels Airlines A330 stuck in Dakar

Post by convair »

Didn't find the right topic for this so I'm opening this new one.

SN205 to DKR is a Euro-Atlantic 767 today. The reason seems to be that OO-SFV is stuck in DKR since Friday. Does anyone have details?

OO-SVF , BRU-ROB went to DKR due to cracked windshields.
The had to replace the windshield so the plane was stuck in DKR.
Best regards,

Looking at FR24 replay, SFV, doing SN1241 didn't reach Monrovia but was diverted to Dakar about an hour before its expected arrival in ROB.
Could the problem be a bird hit?

And BTW thank you airbuske!
