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