A Delta Airlines Airbus A330-300, registration N812NW performing flight DL-73 from Amsterdam (Netherlands) to Atlanta,GA (USA), was climbing out of Amsterdam's runway 24 when the crew stopped the climb at FL060 reporting they had a minor issue with the landing gear and requested to enter a hold while trying to figure it out. The aircraft entered a hold over waypoint SUGOL. After about 25 minutes in the hold the crew advised the company wanted them to return to Amsterdam, the landing gear didn't want to come up, no assistance was needed though it would be an overweight landing. The aircraft landed safely on Amsterdam's runway 27 about 35 minutes after departure.

The aircraft remained on the ground for about 2 hours, then departed again and is currently enroute to the USA over the Atlantic Ocean.
