A Delta Airlines Airbus A330-300, registration N806NW performing flight DL-74 from Atlanta,GA (USA) to Amsterdam (Netherlands), was climbing out of Atlanta when the crew stopped the climb at 17,000 feet advising they apparently had something hanging off the wing, a flaps fairing perhaps and might need to go back to Atlanta. The aircraft entered a hold, the crew subsequently advised it looks like the flaps fairing and the hydraulic actuator were loose, they couldn't ignore that condition but it wouldn't pose any problem, no assistance was needed. The aircraft burned off fuel and returned to Atlanta for a safe landing about 70 minutes after departure, flap fairing and hydraulic actuator still attached to the aircraft.

The flight was cancelled.

The occurrence aircraft returned to service about 25.5 hours after landing back.
