Bangladesh Flight Banned Entry Into US Over Safety Issues

Flight Diverts To Montreal

Executives at Biman Bangladesh Airlines say they still don't know why their flight from Dhaka to JFK was turned away before entering US airspace Saturday.

The DC-10 was en route from Dhaka, flying through Brussels, when the flight crew entered Canadian airspace. That's when they got word from the Civil Aviation Authority of Canada that they wouldn't be allowed to land in New York.

Well, now what? The plane apparently didn't have enough fuel on board to return to Brussels, so it wound up landing in Montreal at about 6:30 Saturday morning.

The 257 passengers were taken to a local hotel... where Biman Bangladesh helped them make arrangements to get to New York.

Bangladesh's New Nation reports that now, Biman wants some answers from the FAA regarding what could have led the FAA to divert their plane. The FAA had earlier written the airline a letter, saying it would lose its right to operate in the US if it didn't improve the safety of both its flights and its passengers.

Biman added Canadian authorities inspected the plane, and its records... and found it to be safe.
