Lufthansa B744 over Atlantic on Oct 18th 2016, smoke in cockpit
Last Update: October 19, 2016 / 20:04:54 GMT/Zulu time
The airline reported the crew decided to divert to Newfoundland due to smoke in the cockpit.
A replacement Boeing 747-400 registration D-ABVT was dispatched to Gander as flight LH-9930, departed Gander as flight LH-464 about 22 hours after D-ABVS landed in Gander and is estimated to reach Orlando with a total delay of 25 hours.
First gossip suggests one of the cockpit seat actuators was the source of the smoke.
