DL 268 JFK-TLV 12/11 In-flight fire, return to JFK

As reported on avherald.com, DL 268 had an in-flight galley fire and fuel pump malfunctions requiring a divert back to JFK. Sunday's flight is showing delayed until Mon AM at 9:30 AM. Glad it had a safe landing.

I've found that the AV Herald isn't usually reliable. If you look at the news regarding this flight every report calls it a smokey oder, nothing about fire or faulty avionics. If there was a fire they would have landed without delay or dumping fuel.

uh-oh! Is that something wrong the fuel pump? Is that 744 aircraft is on the way JFK-TLV, am I correct? I wasn't sure about passengers will spent in JFK for overnight observations. I think passengers will have rebooked for next flight out there. Is that something wrong the mechanical problems? They will repaired the aircraft tonight. It will brings it back normal routine again tomorrow morning.
