A Corendon Dutch Airlines Boeing 737-800, registration PH-CDE performing flight CD-221 from Amsterdam (Netherlands) to Las Palmas,CI (Spain) with 188 people on board, was climbing out of Amsterdam when the crew levelled off at FL270 still maintaining low speed (about 350 knots over ground), descended to FL200 and subsequently decided to return to Amsterdam advising ATC, they would perform a flaps 15 landing at about 160-175 KIAS and needed to burn off fuel, still checking their landing distance needed. ATC offered runway 27 and cleared the flight to FL070 to burn off fuel. After about 2.5 hours at FL070 the aircraft positioned for an approach to runway 27 and landed without further incident at a higher speed than normal (about 180 knots over ground) about 2:45 hours after departure.

The aircraft remained on the ground for about 11 hours, then returned to service first performing a rotation to Antalya (Turkey) before departing for flight CD-221 again with a delay of about 24 hours.
