A Delta Airlines Airbus A330-300, registration N814NW performing flight DL-259 from Amsterdam (Netherlands) to Boston,MA (USA), was cleared for takeoff from Amsterdam's runway 09 and was accelerating for takeoff.

An Easyjet Airbus A319-100, registration G-EZIO performing flight U2-7976 from Rome Fiumicino (Italy) to Amsterdam (Netherlands), was on final approach to Amsterdam's runway 06 cleared to land on the runway, when the crew elected to go around from low height (about 100 feet AGL) due to the approach in gusting winds having become unstable.

Due to the late go around tower needed to cancel the takeoff clearance of DL-259, the crew rejected takeoff at low speed and vacated the runway at the first high speed turn off about 1300 meters down the runway.

The A319 landed safely on their second approach about 12 minutes later. The A333 positioned back the holding point runway 09, departed about 30 minutes after the rejected takeoff and reached Boston with a total delay of 100 minutes.
