    Oh-oh - seems like DL239 is having problems less than half an hour after take-off from Amsterdam:

    Now cruising at 286kts/10,000ft (down from 481kts/33,400ft) and returning til AMS :-(

    Let's hope it's not a serious technical problem...

    AFAIK it was an alarm regarding the pressure system that forced an immediate decent to 10000ft and a return to AMS.

    But it was apparently a bad day for Delta in AMS today. Later DL267 (AMS-BOS) returned after smoke in the cockpit.

    DL267 back at the gate:
