EMERGENCY Delta flight from JFK forced to turn around after pilots realizes door may be open


A Thursday night flight carrying 222 passengers from New York City to Paris was forced to turn around after the crew realized the aircraft’s door might have been open — but it turned out to be a false alarm.

A company spokesman described it as a “possible issue with the aircraft’s cargo door latching mechanism” on the Boeing 777. The plane turned around and dumped fuel to lighten the landing weight.

Once the plane landed, technicians realized that the door had been closed all along.
