Air Malta's flight from Heathrow 'stuck' in Catania for ten-hours because of fog, crew change

An Air Malta flight from London-Heathrow (KM-103), due to have arrived in Malta shortly after midnight, was diverted to Catania and stuck there for almost ten-hours. The flight was one of two diverted because of fog over Malta. 

An Air Malta spokesman said the delay on the London flight was made worse because a crew change was required since the first crew was 'out of hours'. The flight arrived in Malta at 10am. 

The other diverted flight, from Birmingham (KM-4237), arrived in Malta early this morning. (Source: timesofmalta.com, 20-May-2015)
