An Air Transat Airbus A330-200, registration C-GUBC performing flight TS-327 from Cancun (Mexico) to Toronto,ON (Canada) with 315 people on board, was climbing out of Cancun's runway 12R when the crew received a Brake Hot ECAM indication. The crew worked the related checklist, the brakes cooled down and the gear was retracted. However, the warning re-appeared two more times, each time the checklist was completed. The crew declared PAN PAN, stopped the climb at FL150 and returned to Cancun for a safe landing on runway 12R about one hour after departure.

The Canadian TSB reported: "Once landed, ARFF inspected the landing gear and released the aircraft for taxi to a parking position. Maintenance inspected Brake #8 on arrival and was found free and cold, no tire fuse plugs melted and the tire pressure was found normal. The #8 brake unit temp sensor was deactivated and put on MEL."

The aircraft remained on the ground for about 4 hours, then departed again and reached Toronto with a delay of about 5 hours.
