An Air France jet returned to Paris’ Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) today when a ‘minor’ problem surfaced with the aircraft’s windshield.
Air France Flight 10, an Airbus A340 aircraft with 261 passengers on board, took off from CDG at 4:42 PM Paris time headed for New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK).
“The plane turned back for a minor technical problem,” he said. “It would have been able to continue to the United States in a secure way but we preferred to make the minor repairs in Paris,” a spokesman for Air France said.
Passengers will be put on a replacement A340.
