Delta Air Lines diverts Flight 135 from Amsterdam to Detroit to Goose Bay, Canada, due to a mechanical problem.

A scheduled Delta Air Lines flight, en route from Amsterdam to Detroit, encountered a mechanical issue, compelling its diversion to Goose Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador, in Canada. The Airbus 330 aircraft, identified as Delta flight 135, underwent redirection to this Canadian province, a considerable distance of approximately 1,700 miles from its intended destination, Detroit Metropolitan Airport.

Passengers, totaling 270 individuals, found themselves unexpectedly in Goose Bay following the unplanned landing. Last-minute accommodations were provided in military barracks.

An additional Delta aircraft was dispatched to retrieve the passengers and crew, ensuring their journey back to Detroit.

Delta offered apologies for the inconvenience caused by the unforeseen situation and explained the challenges faced by the crew due to weather and runway conditions at Goose Bay airport, affecting crew duty times and operations. Further details about the mechanical issue and the need for an additional aircraft remained undisclosed at the time of reporting.
