    AF009 Last Night - Turned Back 2 hours in.

    Do any of our friends here have knowledge of Air France operations? Our friend's sister was on 009 last night. It took off on time, but turned back 2 hours out....is there any way of finding out what happened? They said weather-was CDG bad as well?

    Thanks in advance,

    I don't think it actually took off, Art. Conditions at JFK at that time were pretty much whiteout at that point. The 11pm METAR was 0 visibility in heavy and blowing snow, wind gusts to 39mph.

    Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem.
    All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control.
    I trust you are not in too much distress. —Captain Eric Moody, British Airways Flight 9

    Thanks-you are correct--the information we got this morning was inaccurate...it canceled--perhaps after on board two hours....
