An Aer Lingus Airbus A330-300, registration EI-FNG performing flight EI-133 from Windsor Locks,CT to Boston,MA (USA) with 314 people on board, was in the initial climb out of Windsor Locks' runway 06 when other pilots observed the right hand engine (CF6) suffered compressor stalls. The flight crew initially reported they had no abnormal indications, but subsequently declared PAN PAN reporting they were receiving engine stall indications, the engine did show some vibrations on takeoff, and requested an immediate return to runway 06. The aircraft stopped the climb at about 3500 feet and landed safely on runway 06 about 12 minutes after departure.

The aircraft had previously diverted to Windsor Locks due to weather conditions at Boston while arriving from Dublin (Ireland) into Boston.

The aircraft is still on the ground in Windsor Locks about 21 hours after landing.
