A United Boeing 777-200, registration N216UA performing flight UA-984 from Paris Charles de Gaulle (France) to San Francisco,CA (USA), was climbing out of Paris when the crew stopped the climb at FL260 due to a burning odour on board. The aircraft returned to Charles de Gaulle Airport for a safe landing about 40 minutes after departure. Fire fighters boarded the aircraft and identified the source of the odour in a galley oven, where plastics covering the meals had touched the oven, melted and caused the odour.

The aircraft departed again after about 3 hours on the ground and flew to Chicago O'Hare,IL (USA) where the aircraft landed about one hour past scheduled landing time in San Francisco. The aircraft is going to continue to San Francisco after a crew change and is estimated to reach San Francisco with a total delay of about 6 hours.
