Delta B764 near Shannon on Oct 25th 2012, grinding noise upon toilet flushes
Last Update: October 26, 2012 / 18:32:24 GMT/Zulu time
The aircraft was able to depart Heathrow again after about 2.5 hours on the ground and reached Atlanta with a delay of 5.5 hours.
A passenger reported a grinding noise was heard from the back of the aircraft whenever a toilet was flushed or water was run in a lavatory. The air conditioning system seemed to also malfunction. The crew announced they were considering to divert to Shannon but then decided to carry on to London Heathrow for the better repair facilities available. Upon landing in Atlanta the crew was 3 minutes short of exceeding maximum permitted crew duty time.
