And why did the plane stay in BRU for 3 hours?
Waiting for a new crew?

Don't forget a plane is not an elevator...
It needs distance to descend.

Agreed and anyhow, as the decision for RTB was taken while in UK airspace, it should have been a lift and not an elevator.
Not that I intend to start a nit-picker career but it gives me an excuse to crack that old one :

A Briton checking in at the reception desk of a hotel in New York :
Briton : Thank you, and where is the lift please?
Receptionist : You mean the Elevator sir? It’s an American invention.
Briton : It’s a lift. We invented the language.
