As there was no way of determining if the fuel information where accurate and true, the only viable option was to go to KEF (shortest time). The crew declared a MAYDAY and requested direct and higher flight level. This request was granted and the flight was cleared to FL380 direct to KEF, increasing estimate to 400kg.
The aircraft resumed service 60 hours after the incident.
