TAP A343 enroute on Sep 22nd 2014, engine problem
Last Update: September 22, 2014 / 16:21:04 GMT/Zulu time
A replacement Airbus A340-300 registration CS-TOC departed Lisbon about 6.5 hours after landing and is currently estimated to reach Luanda with a delay of 13 hours.
The airline reported the problem related to the bearings of one of the engine. The decision to return to Lisbon was taken in consultation between crew and maintenance at the "point of return", the flight could have continued to Luanda, but the repair would be quicker in Lisbon than in Luanda.
