Returning to the gate is not a major deal. The flying public would be
shocked to find out what is allowable to be broken and still considered to
be safe. There is probably not very many airplanes that do not have at least
1 or 2 deffered items on them at any one time. Sometimes things happen and
the crew is not required to return to the gate. Most people would believe
that everything is required to be working correctly all of the time, this is
not the case.
